“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.” Pablo Picasso “In painting you must give the idea of the true by means of the false.” Edgar Degas “Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.” Edgar Degas “Painting is an attempt to come to terms with life. There are as many solutions as there are human beings.” George Tooker
“Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.” Pablo Picasso “Painters are engaged not just in covering a surface with paint, but also in the act of expressing emotion or content that is not sayable in words.” Margaret Peot “For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.” Georges Rouault.
