Fridas Paintings quotes by Stephanie Cowell
#2. Sometimes he dreamt he held her; that he would turn in bed and she would be there. But she was gone and he was old. Nearly seventy. Only cool paint met his fingers. "Ma très chère . . ." Darkness started to fall, dimming the paintings. He felt the crumpled letter in his pocket. "I loved you so," he said. "I never would have had it turn out as it did. You were with all of us when we began, you gave us courage. These gardens at Giverny are for you but I'm old and you're forever young and will never see them. . . . #Quote by Stephanie Cowell
Fridas Paintings quotes by Frida Kahlo
#3. Really, I do not know whether my paintings are surrealist or not, but I do know that they are the frankest expression of myself. #Quote by Frida Kahlo
Fridas Paintings quotes by Adam Miller
#4. Typically, images or paintings are designated as anamorphic when, in order for the image to appear, a particular line of sight must be adopted. The image only shows up when approached from the angle dictated to the viewer by the image's own set of conditions. In this sense, the viewer must 're-form' their perspective to match the perspective demanded by the image. We are not free to approach the image as we wish; the image is free to assign us a perspective proper to itself ... Anamorphosis, then, describes the freedom of the phenomenon to give itself as it wishes and it measures the extent to which this freedom turns the tables on the one to whom it appears. To receive a phenomenon as it wishes to give itself is to yield control and suspend our own timetables and preconditions in order to be faithful to the conditions set by what gives itself. #Quote by Adam Miller
Fridas Paintings quotes by David Bayles
#5. We have a language that reflects how we learn to paint, but not how we learn to paint our paintings. How do you describe the [reader to place words here] that changes when craft swells into art? #Quote by David Bayles
Fridas Paintings quotes by John Steinbeck
#6. The paintings on the wall were largely preoccupied with the amazing heroism of large dogs faced with imperiled children. Nor water nor fire nor earthquake could do in a child so long as a big dog was available. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Fridas Paintings quotes by Marc Chagall
#7. What counts is art. painting, a kind of painting that is quite different from what everyone makes it out to be. But what kind? Will God or someone else give me the strength to breathe the breath of prayer and mourning into my paintings, the breath of prayer for redemption and resurrection? #Quote by Marc Chagall
Fridas Paintings quotes by Bruce Crown
#8. Artists hide their identities in the brushstrokes of their paintings, the verses in their cantos, and the sentences in their novels. The true face of an artist is never on his face and this is what he prefers. Others misunderstand this displaced melancholy with an absence of melancholy. #Quote by Bruce Crown
Fridas Paintings quotes by Cassandra Clare
#9. Why all these paintings of you? Because I'm an artist, Emma. These pictures are my heart. And if my heart was a canvas, every square Inch of it would be painted over with you." - Julian Blackthorn #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Fridas Paintings quotes by Ishmael Reed
#10. Have you ever seen people line up outside a Van Gogh exhibit? When they get inside there are so many they can't even see the paintings, they just pass by like sheep or like mourners passing the tomb of a fallen hero, a bier, with the same solemnity. And the extent of their knowledge concerning Van Gogh is that he "cut off his ear." Man, it's religion they make it into. #Quote by Ishmael Reed
Fridas Paintings quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#11. The tremendous leisure industry that has arisen in the last few generations has been designed to help fill free time with enjoyable experiences. Nevertheless, instead of using our physical and mental resources to experience flow, most of us spend many hours each week watching celebrated athletes playing in enormous stadiums. Instead of making music, we listen to platinum records cut by millionaire musicians. Instead of making art, we go to admire paintings that brought in the highest bids at the latest auction. We do not run risks acting on our beliefs, but occupy hours each day watching actors who pretend to have adventures, engaged in mock-meaningful action. #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Fridas Paintings quotes by Richard Schmid
#12. I see the things and people and events in my daily world as an endless succession of paintings. #Quote by Richard Schmid
Fridas Paintings quotes by Helen Macdonald
#13. The deer in procession resemble charcoal cave paintings rendered manifest. Art's magic working backwards. The chalk behind them, bone. And not the hare runs, too. The hare runs in the opposite direction to the deer. The animals runs, and the landscape seems then to be parting in front of me. Deer one way, hare the other. And now they are quite gone: the hare to the fieldmargin at the top of the hill to my left, the deer into the wood at the top of the hill to my right. There is nothing before me now but wind and chalk and wheat. #Quote by Helen Macdonald
Fridas Paintings quotes by Lydia Millet
#14. There was the honour and austerity of money as he walked through art galleries, as he saw around him the collections of oil paintings by dead men, lit so carefully that warmth seemed to emanate from within - and not because their art was loved or understood but because it could be sold and bought for handsome sums. #Quote by Lydia Millet
Fridas Paintings quotes by Marina Abramovic
#15. Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, "Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don't. But you listen to them anyway." So, sometimes with art, it is important
just to look. #Quote by Marina Abramovic
Fridas Paintings quotes by Rohinton Mistry
#16. Chanu went on."This artist, Abedin- he painted the famine which came to our country in 1942 and '43. These famous paintings hang now in a museum in Dhaka. I will take you to see them. In the famine, there was life and there was death. The people of Bangladesh died and the crows and the vultures lived. Abedin shows it all: the child who is too weak to walk or even to crawl, and the fat, black crows- how patiently they wait by the child for their next feast.
" This is how it was. Three million people died because of starvation. Can you imagine that? You cannot. Can you imagine something else? While the crows and vultures stripped our bones, the British, our rulers, exported grain from the country. This is something you cannot imagine, but now that you know it, you will never forget."
Chanu breathed deeply but his face remained still. "That's it," he said. "It will be time to go very soon. #Quote by Rohinton Mistry
Fridas Paintings quotes by Nora Roberts
#17. I could come down for a couple of days, Daniel,but I'd like to bring someone."
"Someone?" Daniel's senses sharpened. He leaned forward with the cigar smoldering in his hand. "Who might this someone be?"
Recognizing the tone, Grant crunched o a corn chip. "An artist I know who's doing some painting in New England, in Winty Point at the moment. I think she'd be interested in your house."
She, Daniel thought with an irrepressible grin.Just because he'd managed to comfortably establish his children didn't mean he had to give up the satisfying hobby of matchmaking. Young people needed to be guided in such matters-or shoved along.And Grant-though he was a Campbell-was by way of being family...
"An artist...aye,that's interesting. Always room for one more,son. Bring her along. An artist," he repeated, tapping out his cigar. "Young and pretty, too, I'm sure."
"She's nearly seventy," Grant countered easily,crossing his ankles as he leaned against the wall. "A little dumpy, has a face like a frog.Her paintings are timeless, tremendous emotional content and physicality.I'm crazy about her." He paused, imagining Daniel's wide face turning a deep puce. "Genuine emotion transcends age and physical beauty, don't you agree?"
Daniel choked, then found his voice. The boy needed help,a great deal of help. "You come early Friday,son. We'll need some time to talk." He stared hard the bookshelf across the room. "Seventy, you say?"
"Close.But then true sensuality #Quote by Nora Roberts
Fridas Paintings quotes by Guity Novin
#18. In my paintings, the question on whether figures are similar or not is not of any importance, the slightest change of figure or color can create a new painting and it doesn't really matter if a subject is revisited by an artist repeatedly. With enough time in between paintings, an artist can always bring to it something new. #Quote by Guity Novin
Fridas Paintings quotes by Juansen Dizon
#19. You & Me

I will always
be glad
for the moments
we've shared
and for the moments
we still have to share.

Waking up next to you
is a miracle:

Your skin; My skin
Your eyes; My eyes
Your hair; My fingers
Your paintings; My poems
Your piercings; My tattoos
Your overfeeling mind; My overthinking heart
Your fart in the middle of the night; My uncontainable laughter
Your soft yawn when you woke up;
My lips kissing your soul back to sleep;
My head on your chest;

Listening to the heart that taught me it's okay to feel again. #Quote by Juansen Dizon
Fridas Paintings quotes by Melissa Jensen
#20. She had a point,you know," Edward commented a few hours later. "Unnecessarily crude, perhaps, but apt. Our public personas frequently do not match our private ones. You, of all people, should know that."
"This isn't about me," I said grumpily. "This is about needing to find more information about the private you.Something I don't already know."
"I have terribly ugly feet."
"Not what I had in mind.And probably untrue anyway."
Edward glanced down at the empty space below his rib cage. "Probably. So, what did you have in mind?"
"A letter,maybe.From Diana.Something that connected your love to your work."
"I rather thought I did that through my paintings."
"You did.I mean, that's what attracted me to you in the first place.Well, o, that was your smile, probably,but the paintings helped. It's just that I need to know more about your muse."
"Ah, darling Ella, the artist's muse is Ego.Nothing more."
"You don't mean that.You married Diana because she made you feel like no one else in the universe ever did or could."
He nodded. "She was extraordinary."
"But not everyone saw that.Your family went nuts.Half of your friends stopped inviting you over, at least for a while."
"Their loss. She was a woman who comes along once in a lifetime. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Fridas Paintings quotes by Lewis Thomas
#21. The need to make music, and to listen to it, is universally expressed by human beings. I cannot imagine, even in our most primitive times, the emergence of talented painters to make cave paintings without there having been, near at hand, equally creative people making song. It is, like speech, a dominant aspect of human biology. #Quote by Lewis Thomas
Fridas Paintings quotes by Eddie Cahill
#22. Paintings helped to change my life. I'd still be living a life of disaster without it. #Quote by Eddie Cahill
Fridas Paintings quotes by Malka Drucker
#23. During one of these arguments, Diego picked up one of his paintings of the Mexican desert and shouted, "I don't want to go back to that!" He had spent fifteen years in Paris and the life of an expatriate suited him. It was easier to be a passionate Mexican nationalist when he wasn't living there #Quote by Malka Drucker
Fridas Paintings quotes by Peter Cameron
#24. The first night Stephen and I slept together, he whispered numbers into my ear: long, high numbers
distances between planets, seconds in a life. He spoke as if they were poetry, and they became poetry. Later, when he fell asleep, I leaned over him and watched, trying to picture a mathematician's dreams. I concluded that Stephen must dream in abstract, cool designs like Mondrian paintings. #Quote by Peter Cameron
Fridas Paintings quotes by Ulrich Boser
#25. In fact, if a museum were filled with all of the world's stolen artworks, it would be the most impressive collection ever created. It would have far more Baroque sculptures, much better Surrealist paintings, and the best Greek antiquities of any known institution. A gallery of stolen art would make the Louvre seem like a small-town gallery in comparison. Experts call it the Lost Museum. #Quote by Ulrich Boser
Fridas Paintings quotes by Yves Bonnefoy
#26. In each painting, I think, it's as if  God were giving up on finishing the world. #Quote by Yves Bonnefoy
Fridas Paintings quotes by Mason Deaver
#27. You always point out the problems with the paintings or the drawings. But what about the things you got right?"
"What about them?"
"Don't they mean something? #Quote by Mason Deaver
Fridas Paintings quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#28. I can't change the fact that my paintings don't sell. But the time will come when people will recognize that they are worth more than the value of the paints used in the picture. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Fridas Paintings quotes by Gerhard Richter
#29. I don't know what motivated the artist, which means that the paintings have an intrinsic quality. I think Goethe called it the 'essential dimension,' the thing that makes great works of art great. #Quote by Gerhard Richter
Fridas Paintings quotes by James Turrell
#30. In thinking of light, if we can think about what it can do, and what it is, by thinking about itself, not about what we wanted it to do for other things, because again we've used light as people might be used, in the sense that we use it to light paintings. We use it to light so that we can read. We don't really pay much attention to the light itself. And so turning that and letting light and sound speak for itself is that you figure out these different relationships and rules. #Quote by James Turrell
Fridas Paintings quotes by Nicole DSettemi
#31. These days so many claim the title artist. To me, a creative soul is an artist no matter the profession. With me? When it comes to creativity there's no show. I love art, I love literature, poetry, paintings. There's no show there. I passionately, devotedly, wholly and completely LOVE being creative. #Quote by Nicole DSettemi
Fridas Paintings quotes by Damian Loeb
#32. Ironically, my paintings don't photograph well. #Quote by Damian Loeb
Fridas Paintings quotes by Donna Tartt
#33. ("It's crazy," she'd said, "but I'd be perfectly happy if I could sit looking at the same half dozen paintings for the rest of my life. I can't think of a better way to go insane.") #Quote by Donna Tartt
Fridas Paintings quotes by Neil Farber
#34. Each painting is its own world, but a lot of times I do see the paintings as one page from a story. You can imagine what has happened before or after. Sometimes they are worded as being a part of a story, especially the paintings where characters are in conversation. #Quote by Neil Farber
Fridas Paintings quotes by Bart Yates
#35. I once heard some idiot on the radio saying that all great art has suffering as its dominant theme, and that the greatest artists are only able to create because they suffer immensely in their own lives. What a bunch of bullshit. Look at Van Gogh's paintings: there's as much joy in them as there is pain. Suffering is only a single color, and by itself it's boring. #Quote by Bart Yates
Fridas Paintings quotes by Robert Genn
#36. Great paintings have gradations, large and small ... They serve to lift the subject off the two-dimensionality of the canvas. Gradations are an essential abstract convention. #Quote by Robert Genn
Fridas Paintings quotes by Douglas Coupland
#37. Microserfs (1995) p28 'He's thinking of quitting [Microsoft] to be a pixelation broker, going around to museums to digitize their paintings #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Fridas Paintings quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#38. What am I in the eyes of most people - a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person - somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then - even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Fridas Paintings quotes by Annie Owens
#39. How long would a child last in this environment that is depicted in your paintings? It seems the child would need a Technicolor camouflage to survive even an hour. #Quote by Annie Owens
Fridas Paintings quotes by Martin Mull
#40. Like a guide dog, paintings help you see. #Quote by Martin Mull
Fridas Paintings quotes by Melissa Jensen
#41. The bequest was for the contents of Edward Willing's library," she said tersely, "and did not include the paintings.Those went...elsewhere." Her already disapproving expression became even more pinched with the word. Like elsewhere was Hell, or Overseas, or MoMA. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Fridas Paintings quotes by Jenny Han
#42. I could have been someone from the book if you'd told me in advance."
"Yes, well, today you'd make a really great Moaning Myrtle."
Peter gives me a blank look, and disbelieving, I say, "Wait a minute…have you never read Harry Potter?"
"I've read the first two."
"Then you should know who Moaning Myrtle is!"
"It was a really long time ago," Peter says. "Was she one of those people in the paintings?"
"No! And how could you stop after Chamber of Secrets? The third one's the best out of the whole series. I mean, that's literally crazy to me." I peer at his face. "Do you not have a soul? #Quote by Jenny Han
Fridas Paintings quotes by Salvador Dali
#43. The fact I myself do not understand what my paintings mean while I am painting them does not imply that they are meaningless. #Quote by Salvador Dali
Fridas Paintings quotes by Irynka
#44. you said,
"your bones belong in museums"
i said,
"when you kiss me,
fireworks electrocute my spine"
my mother is dying and doesn't play piano anymore,
i tell my mailman about how he should try pecan pie,
when at the supermarket, i always forget about eggs,

i've started collecting paintings,
i go to little art shows all around New York City
and introduce myself as "Rose"
when strange boys stare at my lips, i kiss
i chew poetry and forget to leave tips,
i order wine and leave flowers at graveyards
that don't have any,
when my father calls, i do not answer

everything you say reminds me of brown tangerines,
i want to spill this poem inside of you

i work as a stewardess and the first thing they
teach you is how to respond when someone asks
you to take off your underwear

i wish i could say "sure thing fella, let me wrap it
around your throat until you turn purple"

but instead it's "if there's anything else, please let me

and so when you called, the only thing i could say was
if there's anything else,
please let me
know #Quote by Irynka
Fridas Paintings quotes by Jasper Johns
#45. I have no ideas about what the paintings imply about the world. I don't think that's a painter's business. He just paints paintings without a conscious reason. #Quote by Jasper Johns
Fridas Paintings quotes by Chris Ofili
#46. When I left the Royal College, I decided I would only make paintings that I would want to look at myself, that felt close to my life. #Quote by Chris Ofili
