A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.
::: William Dobell :::


All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.
::: Eckhart Tolle :::


Whether I'm painting or not, I have this overweening interest in humanity. Even if I'm not working, I'm still analyzing people.
::: Alice Neel :::


I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
::: Andrew Wyeth :::
