Too many non-painting tasks this morning. I’m usually at the easel by lunchtime, but not today. It’s something we all have to figure out- how to get everything done and still have time to do what we want and need to do, which is to make art.
So, I’m going to offer some quotes I like for a rainy afternoon in Humboldt County. And then GET PAINTING!
I think people who are not artists often feel that artists are inspired. But if you have to work at your art you don’t have time to be inspired. Out of work comes the work. John Cage
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor the world. That makes it hard to plan the day. E.B. White
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. Scott Adams
The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do? Pablo Picasso
Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere. G.K. Chesterton
