more.. cause I need somewhere to store them....

• Paintings aren’t just objects, they’re personal statements. Art isn’t about cynicism, it’s about faith and hope. Paintings are physical. So is the act of creating them. This physicality should be emphasized.
• Make marks all the time
• Don’t just be a painterly painter, pack images with as much as I can. Any material I touch will leave my name on it. … I did that. It will take my form. No need to make the distinction between mediums. It’s the object that’s most important.
• The sky starts at out feet. ~ Howard Rosenthal
• The artists emotions will go wherever the passion takes them losing control over formative faculties. Emotion does not contribute impulses of its own; its merely an effect of the forces taking place in the mind.
• A message will not be heeded unless it is first entertaining.
• Art is the method to gain access to the original messages that were impressed on our souls during creation.
• Form must be willed.
• “Drawing is not what you see but what you make other’s see” ~ Degas
• “Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes others realize the truth, at least the truth we can understand. The artist must know the manner where by he convinces the others of the truthfulness of his lies. “ ~ Picasso
• Art creates form long before it is beautiful
• We form our eyes by closing them. The eye must be taught to look at nature; how many have never seen it and never will. This is the agony of our lives. Knowing how to draw is knowing what to look for.
• Art resides in the soul and is a certain reflection of the soul.
• Art is a virtue- not a moral virtue, a virtue of practical intellect.
