    I love your quote, somerset artist!

    I read this one on an artist's site the other day (sorry can't remember the artist's name, or I'd share that with you too):

    "If a man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty" - Japanese proverb.

    I totally understand!!

    'The creation of art is to an artist as a tree is to a dog in the desert'



    Me! - 2008 whilst recently trying to explain to someone why I like to paint.

    Travelling along lifes highway only to find I've turned down a dead end.

    can't claim to be an artist, but I like to dabble, and attended some painting classes last year (oils)
    came back with a partly done canvas and kids went


    "wow...that's really great"
    Then

    "what is it meant to be?"

    havent got the oils and canvasses out for a while now..not surprisingly!

    LOL....this will be great...can we add favourite artist quotes too?

    My partner recently said to me after I finished a painting

    Him: "Why did you paint over what you had before, I liked the other painting more"

    Me: "this is the other painting, it wasn't finished. I like it now!!!"

    Him: "oh, sorry love, this is nice"

    hmmmm..not v.good at digging himself out of a hole...lol!

    'Nice' isn't a word we like to hear in art

    I always preferred to paint the inner child and reveal the rest.

    Inner Truth

    When I paint I am attempting to reveal my inner child.

    started a topic The philosphy of painting

    The philosphy of painting

    To all my fellow artists on the forum, I thought that I would start a thread that offers deep insights into the very art of art.


    Remember that creating a masterpiece is easy... it is just a case of putting the paint in the right place!!


    Happy painting and feel free to add your own thoughts.
