Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very
difficult when you do.   ~Edgar Degas

Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain
an artist once he grows up.  ~Pablo Picasso

It is the eye of ignorance that assigns a fixed and
unchangeable color to every object; beware of this
stumbling block.  ~Paul Gauguin
Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon.  A happiness weapon.  A beauty bomb.  
And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one.  It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and
send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air.  Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas.  And we
wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight.  Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in.  
With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest.  And people
would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.  ~Robert Fulghum

Art is either plagiarism or revolution.  -Paul Gauguin

Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely. Light and colour, peace and hope, will keep them company
to the end of the day. -Winston Churchill
