I have to accept my role. I will never kill myself like Vincent Van Gogh. Nor will I paint beautiful water lilies like Monet. I can't do that. I'm in the idiot role of being a kiddie book person.
It depends on where you put the paint, not how much you splash on.
I do not paint a portrait to look like the subject, rather does the person grow to look like his portrait.
I believe we create our own lives. And we create it by our thinking, feeling patterns in our belief system. I think we're all born with this huge canvas in front of us and the paintbrushes and the paint, and we choose what to put on this canvas.
Louise L. Hay
I believe, I believe every day is a good day when you paint.
The more I paint the more I like everything.
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.
My mother was a piano teacher, my father an inventor. He invented the reflective paint they still use on airstrips. They had faith in my ambition, and I think that made all the difference.
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.
They say I'm insane because I need to have so much creative control. They say I'm unmanageable, but I'm not. I just know what I like. I'm obsessed with it. If you can't control it, that's like having somebody else paint your pictures. How could you do that? I never could.
I have improved the way in which I paint. The colours are cleaner and there is more energy in the brush work.
A kind of racism still exists in the United States, and Islamophobia is a more convenient way to express that sentiment. There has also been an attempt to paint Muslims as enemies of the United States.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
I've had a lifelong love affair with makeup. When I was a little girl, I used to take my mother's makeup and paint all of my dolls' faces, and I even painted the dog's face!
When I paint, I definitely live in the present, like someone in a shower whistling or singing.
If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.
People don't have time to wait for somebody to paint their portraits anymore. The money is in photography.
What I wanted to do was to paint sunlight on the side of a house.
Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.
Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.
I hate flowers - I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move.
Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend.
John Singer Sargent
Camera lies all the time. It's all it does is lie, because when you choose this moment instead of this moment, when you... the moment you've made a choice, you're lying about something larger. 'Lying' is an ugly word. I don't mean lying. But any artist picks and chooses what they want to paint or write about or say. Photographers are the same.
If there were only one truth, you couldn't paint a hundred canvases on the same theme.
Some people like to paint trees. I like to paint love. I find it more meaningful than painting trees.
As far as I am concerned the paint is the person. I want it to work for me just as flesh does.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
