Art is not the application of a canon of beauty, but what the instinct and brain can conceive beyond any canon.

                 -- Pablo Picasso

The distinction fine art versus other art is extremely important.

                -- Ad Reinhardt

One learns about painting by looking at and imitating other painters.  I can't stress enough how important it is, if you are interested at all in painting, to look and to look a great deal at painting.  There is no other way to

find out about painting."
                -- Frank Stella

"Accuracy is not necessarily the truth."    
                -- Eugene Delecroix

"Art is the compulsion of humankind toward crystallization."
               -- Edvard Munch

“Indeed, whatever exists in the universe, whether in essence, in act, or in the imagination, the painter has first in his mind and then in his hands.”
                 -- Leonardo Da Vinci

"No true artist ends with the style that he expected to have when he began; any more than anyone's life unrolls in the particular manner that one expected when young.  It is only by giving oneself up completely to the painting medium that one finds oneself and one's own style."
               -- Robert Motherwell

"Different motives inevitably require different methods of expression."
              -- Pablo Picasso

"There can be no schools; there are only painters."
              -- Gustave Courbet

“Invention depends altogether upon execution or organization.”
                  -- William Blake

“It is the medium, or the specific configuration of the medium, that we call a work of art that brings feeling into being....”
               -- Robert Motherwell


Every single person in the world has evidence to give of their own individuality.
                        -- Robert Henri

“I have simply wished to assert the reasoned and independent feeling of ny own individuality within a total knowledge of tradition.”
                        -- Courbet

It can’t look like art if it looks like someone else's art.
                       -- Chuck Close

The reason for working in art must come from you, from your psyche, your will, your ambition. The motivation has to be personal. You cannot be derivative.
                       -- Louise Bourgeois

Get into the spirit of having a spirit of inquiry. Flesh out an idea with what led up to it and what leads away from it. Follow through an idea even if it doesn't work out. If you have a table and a chair in a room, how would a chinese artist do it? How would Rubens do it? How would Picasso do it? - Realize how strong a point of view is.
