"Creativity Takes Courage"

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way. Things I had no words for.

-O’Keeffe

 

The problem with the youth of today is that one is no longer part of it.

-Dali

 

When you're very young, you suddenly find this marvelous freedom, it's quite exciting, and you're prepared to do anything.

-Hockney

 

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.

-Picasso

 

I am risking my life for my work, and half my reason has gone.

-Van Gogh

 

Creativity takes courage.

-Matisse

 

Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it.

-Motherwell

 

I was a really lousy artist as a kid. Too abstract expressionist, or I'd draw a ram's head, really messy. I'd never win painting contests. I remember losing to a guy who did a perfect spiderman.

-Basquiat
