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.
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
