Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. To perform this difficult office it is sometimes necessary for him to sacrifice happiness and everything that makes life worth living for the ordinary human being. Carl Jung
I am risking my life for my work, and half my reason has gone.
Vincent van Gogh
You’re confusing product with process. Most people, when they criticize, whether they like it or hate it, they’re talking about product. That’s not art, that’s the result of art. Art, to whatever degree we can get a handle on (I’m not sure that we really can) is a process. It begins in the heart and the mind with the eyes and hands.
I like working. My friends get pissed off. I cancel dinner dates and all that kind of stuff because I like being in my studio. Jenny Saville
"My artwork is never bad,
There’s no right or wrong way,
My effort makes me feel glad,
I would draw anything,
an ocean or a bay.
Bright colors, lines are bold;
artwork is like gold."
From a student – Cedar Creek Elementary
