A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.

If you paint a picture and I paint a picture, we each want to do it our own way. And we'll stand or fall on whatever we did.

Good Forth

I was not out to paint beautiful pictures; even painting good pictures was not important to me. I wanted only to help the truth burst forth.

- Alice Duer Miller

Quickly Mediums

All of my art is suitcase-sized. I always paint in mediums that dry pretty quickly because I've got to throw them in my suitcase and go. And I have so much because of that, because it's what I've always done to pass the time, and I like it.

- Alison Mosshart

Very Anything

I read very one-note. Teacher's pet, Goody Two-shoes. I'd hate to be annoying. Who wants to see movies with someone annoying in them? But it's hard for me to paint myself as anything but whatever it is I come across as - which is pretty together.

- Allison Williams

Like Happen

I just happen to like ordinary things. When I paint them, I don't try to make them extraordinary. I just try to paint them ordinary-ordinary.

- Andy Warhol

Small Stood

I was a daughterless mother. I had nowhere to put the things a mother places on her daughter. The nail polish I used to paint our toenails hardened. Our favorite videos gathered dust. Her small apron was in a box in the attic. Her shoes - the sparkly ones, the leopard rain boots, the ballet slippers - stood in a corner.

- Ann Hood

Certainly Bears

The painter... does not fit the paints to the world. He most certainly does not fit the world to himself. He fits himself to the paint. The self is the servant who bears the paintbox and its inherited contents.

Way Am

I don't paint. I am a hobbyist photographer, so I relate to the visual arts that way, but I'm not a painter.

Want Exterior

If you want to paint the inner life, you paint it from the exterior. From the exterior, you breathe the inner life into your painting.

- Charlotte Rampling

Glue Very

In interior decorating, the pig's actually quite there. It's used in paint for the texture, but also for the glossiness. In sandpaper, bone glue is actually the glue between the sand and the paper. And then in paintbrushes, hairs are used because, apparently, they're very suitable for making paintbrushes because of their hard-wearing nature.

- Christien Meindertsma

Art Artist

I grew up thinking art was pictures until I got into music and found I was an artist and didn't paint.

White Marble

White paint is my marble.

Many scholars believe his work intentionally provides clues to a powerful secret... a secret that remains protected to this day by a clandestine brotherhood of which Da Vinci was a member.

- Dan Brown

Could The Only Thing

All I could do at school was paint and draw and that was the only time I ever passed any exam. It was the only thing I ever got right at school.

Magic is my paint.

Sum Some

I hate bumper stickers, you can't sum anything up. All you do is paint yourself in some caricaturist corner.

My web site is so fresh. The paint is still wet, but stay tuned, because I have lots of personal things, specifically about what is happening day-to-day, that I will keep updating daily.

- David Hasselhoff

Want Attic

You don't paint pictures to put them in your attic. You want people to look at them.

- Joe Dante

Reports Cans

When the campaign ends, and you are home, the alarm clock is the same, but you don't know where to start after it goes off: expense reports, new stories, the crusted paint cans that have to go to the hazardous-waste disposal site, the wiper blade on the Honda that has gone droopy.

- John Dickerson

Apply Tube

I apply paint directly from the tube and with my fingers.

- John Dyer

See Would

I paint what I see, not what a camera would see.

- John Dyer

Want Always

Painting is really good fun, I have always enjoyed it. As long as I paint what I want with the freedom that I enjoy, I never tire.

- John Dyer

Color Choose

The colors I choose there was to paint the first hotel, the Disneyland Hotel. Because of the cloudy sky we had in Paris, it had to be a particular kind of color who will fight those grey days. And also something you can see when you're driving up 'There it is! We're arriving!'

- John Hench

Aesthetic Viewer

It is not an aesthetic misstep to make the viewer aware of the paint and the painter's hand. Such an empathetic awareness lies at the heart of aesthetic appreciation.

- John Updike

Artist Doing

I started out as an artist, and what I do is verbal paintings. I paint a picture. Hopefully, you'll see the characters and what they're doing and what they're saying.

- Jonathan Winters

Every Day Some

I find painting a much slower process than comedy, where you can go a mile a minute verbally and hope to God that some of the people out there understand you. I don't paint every day. I'm not that motivated.

- Jonathan Winters

Joy Sing

I sing my sorrow, and I paint my joy.

- Joni Mitchell

Sleep Career

I'm irresponsible to my career in order to paint. Because painting is obsessive. I forget to eat. I forget to sleep.

- Joni Mitchell

Week Show

There's certainly pressure to find your audience early. You need to paint the picture, but it's tough trying to find the balance between a show that people can tune in on any given week while still grabbing the people who are there every week.

- Jorge Garcia

Other I Think

I think a lot of times we think of music as being different from other art forms. You would never ask a sculptor or painter, 'Go paint this because you'll get paid more,' you know what I mean?

- Jose James

News Falling

An obsessive attention to the news, I've realized, only serves to paint a picture of the world as a throbbing blob of dysfunction, most news falling somewhere on a scale from disappointing to calamitous.

Always Still

I always pet a dog with my left hand because if he bit me I'd still have my right hand to paint with.

Want Explain

If I paint something, I don't want to have to explain what it is.

- Bob Ross

Equally Crucial

Brushes are crucial for applying glazes, sauces, and oils. The pastry brushes that you find in homestores can be pricey so pay a visit to your local hardware store and pick up a few paint brushes which are less expensive and work equally as well.

- Bobby Flay

Hands Aspiring

I have a sewing machine that I adore, and I spend a lot of time sitting in front of it when I'm not working. And any excuse to paint or draw or do something artistic with my hands really gets me going. Definitely aspiring.

- India de Beaufort

Over Wear

My uniform is sweatpants, so crusted over with dried paint that they're as hard as a table. I wear T-shirts that are also covered in paint, and Crocs.

Generously Putting

Work at the same time on sky, water, branches, ground, keeping everything going on an equal basis... Don't be afraid of putting on colour... Paint generously and unhesitatingly, for it is best not to lose the first impression.

- Camille Pissarro

Country Own

The deployment of geolocating tags attached to ordinary garbage could paint a surprising picture of the waste management system, as trash is shipped throughout the country in a maze-like disposal process - as we saw in Seattle with our own Trash Track project.

- Carlo Ratti

Been Means

It doesn't make much difference how the paint is put on as long as something has been said. Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement.

- Jackson Pollock

Things Very

The things that I paint are things that I know very well.

- Jamie Wyeth

Want Very

I'm a very boring person, and all I do is want to paint and to record what I feel moves me or what interests me, and that can be in the form of a pig or in the form of President Kennedy.

- Jamie Wyeth

House Had

We had all these smiley family pictures all over the walls of my house, but I always found those pictures to be odd because we weren't smiling all the time. I don't want to paint the picture of a total dysfunctional house, but there were a lot of arguments in that house. A lot of pain.

- Derek Cianfrance

Instinct About

Nobody taught Picasso how to paint - he learned for himself. And nobody can teach you to be a producer. You can learn the mechanics, but you can't learn what's right about a script or a director or an actor. That comes from instinct and intuition. It comes from inside you.

- Dino De Laurentiis

More Like

The more I paint the more I like everything.

- Jean-Michel Basquiat

North Touched

Sting was one of my first and biggest influences. One night in North Carolina, when I reached out and touched his shoulder, he had the face paint on, and I didn't know why, but I loved it. I wanted to be just like him, and I was only 11 years old.

- Jeff Hardy

Waiting Here

To make films is as boring as watching paint dry - you usually have to do little tiny bits here and there. You go off waiting for lighting, you come back - the energy dies. You hope you can find someone who can keep it going.

- Jenny Agutter

Long Back

I'd paint long strips of canvas and abandon them on the beach, or put bread out in geometric patterns for the pigeons downtown. I wanted people to find something nice and intriguing to puzzle over. Then I'd go back to see if the things were still there, or if anyone would notice.

- Jenny Holzer

Rest Again

There is only one true thing: instantly paint what you see. When you've got it, you've got it. When you haven't, you begin again. All the rest is humbug.

- Edouard Manet

Amendment About

If I was president, of course I'd want an amendment banning boy bands, but it just wouldn't be right, and I wouldn't do it. Then again... I don't want to paint myself into a corner on this one. Let me think about it.

- Jessi Klein

Trust Directly

I trust Winsor and Newton and I paint directly upon it.

- Edward Hopper

Back Goes

When I paint a picture of a house, that goes back to my roots.

- Edward Ruscha

Tree Which

When you draw or paint a tree, you do not imitate the tree; you do not copy it exactly as it is, which would be mere photography. To be free to paint a tree or a flower or a sunset, you have to feel what it conveys to you: the significance, the meaning of it.

- Jiddu Krishnamurti

Hands Run

The irony is that the more we fight age, the more it shows. Paint on a 50-year-old face brings to mind a Gilbert and Sullivan comic figure. Smooth the cheeks, and suddenly the ear lobes and hands look out of place. Do we run around in October, painting the gold leaves green?

- Karen DeCrow

Some Turned

It's clear that Planned Parenthood went out of its way to paint me as some sort of a zealot - a Trojan-horse zealot who came into Komen and within 10 to 11 months had completely turned the place upside down. That's clearly not who I am, and it's not what happened.

- Karen Handel

Need Subjects

To paint well, I need to be enraptured by my subjects.

- Elizabeth Peyton

Nation Association

I'm actually an equestrian, and I showed in the American Paint Horse Association and competed for top 20 in the nation.

- Kate Upton

Gardening Hedge

Because I am really interested in gardening, I do really interesting plants, not even always flowers. And because I have grown them, I really know them like friends. I paint everything from exotic orchids to rosehips growing wild in a hedge. They just have to speak to me.

- Emma Tennant

Woman Doing

I could never really imagine myself doing one thing, and I'm pretty sure that I'll end up doing four or five different things. I want to be a Renaissance woman. I want to paint, and I want to write, and I want to act, and I want to just do everything.

- Emma Watson

Reality See

See, when I paint, it is an experience that, at its best, is transcending reality.

- Keith Haring

Still Wet

In your mid-twenties, the paint is still wet on who you are.

- Ethan Hawke

Some Close Friends

I also paint and enjoy acrylic medium; some of my close friends have paintings I did for them.

- Kiana Tom

Bring Envision

Envision what the end result is supposed to be... what do you want to be when you grow up? Where do you see yourself? Once we identify what the painting on the wall is, it is so much easier to bring in the right colors, canvas and brushes to paint that picture.

- Fat Joe

Through Other

You paint what you know best; what you went through as a teenager and child. My world is the one I got to know in Medellin; I never paint anything else other than that.

- Fernando Botero

Love I Love

I paint. I love the visual arts.

- Kristin Bauer van Straten

Men Cannot

I can paint pictures, but I cannot rule men.

- Fra Angelico

Must Christ

He who wishes to paint Christ's story must live with Christ.

- Fra Angelico

Love Our

'Illusion' is a story of God's love and our hunger to find him when we're separated from him. If I can paint a picture of two people still in love after 40 years, that's a pretty good message.

- Frank Peretti

Thought Rope

I looked at one little print for a long time. It was called 'The Landing.' It showed men tugging on a rope, pulling a boat up onto skids out of the water. The thought occurred to me that I might paint such a picture.

- Frederick Banting

Like Disenchanted

No, I didn't become disenchanted. I just couldn't paint like them.

- Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Behind Feels

I found that gloss paint suited me entirely, and its qualities still intrigue me. It's viscous and fluid and feels like a pool. It's highly reflective, which means there are layers of looking. You look at the picture, and you look at the surface, then you look at the reflection in the surface behind you, then you look at yourself.

- Gary Hume

Day Slice

I paint a slice of life, whatever it is that day.

- Geoffrey Holder

Made Your

Don't paint a nasty picture of your exes. We'll justifiably wonder what made you stay in those heinous situations in the first place.

- Liz Vassey

Will Christ

My only objective is to paint a Christ so moving that those who see him will be converted.

- Georges Rouault

Best Survive

I believe in painting and I believe in eating too. What can we do? We have to eat, we have to paint, we have to live. Of course, there are different ways to survive. But it's my best option.

- Gerhard Richter


I can't paint as well as Vermeer.

- Gerhard Richter
