Relined Painting quotes by John Piper
#1. Christians belive in a sovereign God who never says "Oops". We believe that all our days ... are divine strokes on the canvas of our lives by the Master Artist who certified his skill, his power, and his love in the Masterpiece of Calvary. If you doubt His skill in painting your life - look at the Calvary #Quote by John Piper
Relined Painting quotes by Paula Rego
#2. I get inspiration from things that have nothing to do with painting: caricature, items from newspapers, sights in the street, proverbs, nursery-rhymes, children's games and songs, nightmares, desires, terrors ... That question [why do you paint?] has been put to me before and my answer was, 'To give terror a face.' But it's more than that. I paint because I can't help it. #Quote by Paula Rego
Relined Painting quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#3. If a painting of a tree was only the exact representation of the original, so that it looked just like the tree, there would be no reason for making it; we might as well look at the tree itself. But the painting, if it is of the right sort, gives something that neither a photograph nor a view of the tree conveys. It emphasizes something of character, quality, individuality. We are not lost in looking at thorns and defects; we catch a vision of the grandeur and beauty of a king of the forest. #Quote by Calvin Coolidge
Relined Painting quotes by James Nares
#4. I was pretty impressed during the opening of one of my shows, when the five-year-old daughter of a well-known movie actress took a running jump at one of my paintings, like she was diving into a swimming pool. I preferred to treat her impulse as a compliment rather than insult. Sadly she hurt herself more than the painting. #Quote by James Nares
Relined Painting quotes by Octavio Paz
#5. Abstract painting seeks to be a pure pictorial language, and thus attempts to escape the essential impurity of all languages: the recourse to signs or forms that have meanings shared by everyone. #Quote by Octavio Paz
Relined Painting quotes by Walter Shaw Sparrow
#6. The pride taken by the Italians in their gifted women is among the most important facts in the history of their Renaissance. #Quote by Walter Shaw Sparrow
Relined Painting quotes by Wally Lamb
#7. When a painting I'm working on becomes my singular focus - when I am "in the zone," as I've heard people put it - a trancelike state will sometimes overtake me. #Quote by Wally Lamb
Relined Painting quotes by P.D. James

Relined Painting quotes by Wayne Thiebaud
#9. When you think of painting as painting it is rather absurd. The real world is before us - glorious sunlight and activity and fresh air, and high speed motor cars and television, all the animation - a world apart from a little square of canvas that you smear paint on. #Quote by Wayne Thiebaud
Relined Painting quotes by J. M. W. Turner
#10. Painting is a strange business. #Quote by J. M. W. Turner
Relined Painting quotes by Cornelia Funke
#11. So Mo began filling the silence with words. He lured them out of the pages as if they had only been waiting for his voice, words long and short, words sharp and soft, cooing, purring words. They danced through the room, painting stained glass pictures, tickling the skin. Even when Meggie nodded off she could still hear them, although Mo had closed the book long ago. Words that explained the world to her, its dark side and its light side, words that built a wall to keep out bad dreams. And not a single bad dream came over that wall for the rest of the night. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Relined Painting quotes by Robert Reynolds
#12. If light is the spiritual quality of painting, color is surely its heart and passion. #Quote by Robert Reynolds
Relined Painting quotes by Cath Crowley
#13. I like that about art, that what you see is sometimes more about who you are than what's on the wall. I look at this painting and think about how everyone has some secret inside, something sleeping like that yellow bird. #Quote by Cath Crowley
Relined Painting quotes by Edward Ruscha
#14. When I began painting, all my paintings were of words which were gutteral utterances like Smash, Boss, Eat. Those words were like flowers in a vase. #Quote by Edward Ruscha
Relined Painting quotes by Henri Matisse
#15. I do not literally paint that table, but the emotion it produces upon me. #Quote by Henri Matisse
Relined Painting quotes by Harold Rosenberg
#16. The artist does not exist except as a personification, a figure of speech that represents the sum total of art itself. It is painting that is the genius of the painter, poetry of the poet, and a person is a creative artist to the extent that he participates in that genius. #Quote by Harold Rosenberg
Relined Painting quotes by Mark Rothko
#17. I don't express myself in my paintings. I express my not-self. #Quote by Mark Rothko
Relined Painting quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#18. The merit of painting lies in the exactness of reproduction. Painting is a science and all sciences are based on mathematics. No human inquiry can be a science unless it pursues its path through mathematical exposition and demonstration. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Relined Painting quotes by Theodore Robinson
#19. My paintings cannot be a negation of what has always been and always will be necessary - drawing and search for values. #Quote by Theodore Robinson
Relined Painting quotes by Amit Kalantri
#20. Magic is the most interesting art because people not necessarily want to learn to paint after they see a great painting, but they want to learn magic after they see a great magic effect. #Quote by Amit Kalantri
Relined Painting quotes by Cath Crowley
#21. I like that the skies go nowhere. In the painting. I like that the birds want to get away but they can't. I like the reflection of paint in the dark. #Quote by Cath Crowley
Relined Painting quotes by Janet Fish
#22. I feel as though I haven't seen an object until I actually start painting it. #Quote by Janet Fish
Relined Painting quotes by Irving Stone
#23. I came down successfully through Picasso and Braque, down through Pollock, I guess, but I began to stop at Franz Kline and the Abstractionists. I like their design, brilliant design, marvelous color layers. But I don't find any human content there. I'm from an old school, and painting has to have human content for me. #Quote by Irving Stone
Relined Painting quotes by Jackie Kennedy
#24. I don't understand it. Jack will spend any amount of money to buy votes but he balks at investing a thousand dollars in a beautiful painting. #Quote by Jackie Kennedy
Relined Painting quotes by J.L. Merrow
#25. You never did ... anything else with Ren?"
I knew he wasn't talking about me painting him and stuff. "Why would I want him when I got you?" And then I got worried, 'cause I wasn't sure if I still had Larry or not. #Quote by J.L. Merrow
Relined Painting quotes by Robert Irwin
#26. I slowly dismantled the act of painting, to consider the possibility that no-thing ever really transcends its immediate environment. #Quote by Robert Irwin
Relined Painting quotes by Jo Baer
#27. A painting is an object which has an emphatic frontal surface. On such a surface, I paint a black band which does not recede, a color band which does not obtrude, a white square or rectangle which does not move back or forth, to or fro, or up or down; there is also a painted white exterior frame band which is edged round the edge to the black. Every part is painted and contiguous to its neighbor; no part is above or below any other part. There is no hierarchy. There is no ambiguity. There is no illusion. There is no space or interval (time). #Quote by Jo Baer
Relined Painting quotes by Helen Fisher
#28. People live for love. They kill for love. They die for love. They have songs, poems, novels, sculptures, paintings, myths, legends. It's one of the most powerful brain systems on Earth for both great joy and great sorrow. #Quote by Helen Fisher
Relined Painting quotes by Charles R. Cross
#29. Being unemployed, Kurt set in motion a routine that he would follow for the rest of his life. He would rise at around noon and eat a brunch of sorts. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese was his favorite food. After eating, he would spend the rest of the day doing one of three things: watching television, which he did unceasingly; practicing his guitar, which he did for hours a day, usually while watching TV; or creating some kind of art project, be it a painting, collage, or three-dimensional installation. This last activity was never formal - he rarely identified himself as an artist - yet he spent hours in this manner. #Quote by Charles R. Cross
Relined Painting quotes by Danny Fox
#30. To make music I rely on other people, which is good - that's the main difference in painting and music at this stage. They are separate parts of my life really, like having two jobs, one in a bar, one in a lighthouse. #Quote by Danny Fox
Relined Painting quotes by Lev Grossman
#31. The whole scene had a dreamlike quality, like a Chagall painting come to life. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Relined Painting quotes by Benedict Jacka
#32. Somehow, though, neither her clothes nor her features seemed to matter - they were the adornments of a painting or a picture, not the real thing. What made her so captivating was something else, not so easily named: the way she moved, the glance of her eyes, the manner and sound and form. All I wanted to do was sit and gape. If I'd let myself fall into her eyes, I think an army of constructs could have battered down the door and I wouldn't have noticed. #Quote by Benedict Jacka
Relined Painting quotes by Irving Stone
#33. Strange story about Degas. He hated women, didn't want to be with them. Yet he spent much of his life painting them. He had seen his father maltreat his mother, must have had a deep fear that he'd do the same thing. #Quote by Irving Stone
Relined Painting quotes by Gary Inbinder
#34. At the Uffizi, I experienced a moment that was touching, painful, and almost embarrassing. We stopped in front of the famous Botticelli painting, The Birth of Venus. I gazed wistfully at her incomparably lovely, yet, as Vasari described, oddly distorted form emerging from the waves in a seashell, her long red-golden tresses blown by Zephyrs. No woman ever had so elongated a neck or such sinuous limbs. Botticelli contorted, and some might say deformed, the human shape to give us a glimpse of the sublime. #Quote by Gary Inbinder
Relined Painting quotes by Augustus William Hare
#35. If Painting be Poetry's sister, she can only be a sister Anne, who will see nothing but a flock of sheep, while the other bodies forth a troop of dragoons with drawn sabres and white-plumed helmets. #Quote by Augustus William Hare
Relined Painting quotes by Peter Webber
#36. I wanted to actually make people look at a painting. We don't look at paintings that much. We glance at them. #Quote by Peter Webber
Relined Painting quotes by Jo Baer
#37. Consider paint a film of light reflecting/absorbing material, and a colored paint a material which gives a particular, characteristic transmission of light via differential absorption and reflection. Call this reflected quality 'luminance' and measure it in millilamberts. This measure is as real and present as height, breadth, depth; and I find the phenomenon equally sumptuous and convincing ... Painted light, not color, not form, not perspective, or line, not image, or words, or equations, is painting. I make paintings which do not represent light, they are light. #Quote by Jo Baer
Relined Painting quotes by John Erskine
#38. Lets tell young people the best books are yet to written; the best painting, the best government the best of everything is yet to be done by them. #Quote by John Erskine
Relined Painting quotes by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
#39. The painter knew that color was not something you controlled but something you set free. He believed that color knew its way home. #Quote by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
Relined Painting quotes by Jamie Wyeth
#40. I'm an odd portrait painter in that I'm not just interested in human faces. I consider almost all of my paintings to be portraits. #Quote by Jamie Wyeth
Relined Painting quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#41. I have never heard a dancer asking for advice about how to stay focused on her footwork, or a painter complaining about the dull day-to-day task of painting. What task worth doing isn't worth daily effort? Do you think Michelangelo was having fun the whole time he was on his back painting the Sistine Chapel's ceiling. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Relined Painting quotes by Grace Curley
#42. He painted until his cursive brushes were only whispers of rawness on the thin ivory. Only the walls and the ravens that watched
knew the boy with the paint-stained palms weaved his art onto his sketchpad on the park bench at lunchtimes, and only the trees
whispered it like a prayer. #Quote by Grace Curley
Relined Painting quotes by John Jacobus
#43. Part of the problem [with Picasso's fame] lies with the artist himself - at that point when Picasso stopped making art and began making is a potentially fatal side-effect of success for any artist... Would it be a parody of modernism's self-referentiality to describe this point as one where the artist stops thinking like an artist and starts [painting] like an art historian? #Quote by John Jacobus
Relined Painting quotes by Prince Charles
#44. Painting transports me into another dimension which, quite literally, refreshes parts of the soul which other activities can't reach. #Quote by Prince Charles
Relined Painting quotes by Viggo Mortensen
#45. Photography, painting or poetry - those are just extensions of me, how I perceive things; they are my way of communicating. #Quote by Viggo Mortensen
Relined Painting quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#46. Paintings and fightings are best seen at a distance. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Relined Painting quotes by Saul D. Alinsky
#47. A bit of a blurred vision of a better world. Much of an organizer's daily work is detail, repetitive and deadly in its monotony. In the totality of things he is engaged in one small bit. It is as though as an artist he is painting a tiny leaf. It is inevitable that sooner or later he will react with "What am I doing spending my whole life just painting one little leaf? The hell with it, I quit." What keeps him going is a blurred vision of a great mural where other artists - organizers - are painting their bits, and each piece is essential to the total. #Quote by Saul D. Alinsky
