Quote of the Day
Cooking is like painting or writing a song. Just as there are only so many notes or colors, there are only so many flavors - it's how you combine them that sets you apart.
Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.
Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.
You can be creative in anything - in math, science, engineering, philosophy - as much as you can in music or in painting or in dance.
Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.
Painting is concerned with all the 10 attributes of sight; which are: Darkness, Light, Solidity and Colour, Form and Position, Distance and Propinquity, Motion and Rest.
Leonardo da Vinci
Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.
Good painting is like good cooking; it can be tasted, but not explained.
Maurice de Vlaminck
The greatest advances of civilization, whether in architecture or painting, in science and literature, in industry or agriculture, have never come from centralized government.
When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it - a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand - as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash between the two, it's bad art.
No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.
I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.
Vincent Van Gogh
My room is dominated by the huge painting, which is a copy of 'The Violation' by the Belgian surrealist Paul Delvaux. The original was destroyed during the Blitz in 1940, and I commissioned an artist I know, Brigid Marlin, to make a copy from a photograph. I never stop looking at this painting and its mysterious and beautiful women.
J. G. Ballard
You wind up creating from silence, like painting a picture on a blank canvas that could bring tears to somebody's eyes. As songwriters, our blank canvas is silence. Then we write a song from an idea that can change somebody's life. Songwriting is the closest thing to magic that we could ever experience. That's why I love songwriting.
When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art.
I don't like food that's too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I'd buy a painting.
Every viewer is going to get a different thing. That's the thing about painting, photography, cinema.
Pop Art looks out into the world. It doesn't look like a painting of something, it looks like the thing itself.
Painting is the most magical of mediums. The transcendence is truly amazing to me every time I go to a museum and I see how somebody figured another way to rub colored dirt on a flat surface and make space where there is no space or make you think of a life experience.
Painting is by nature a luminous language.
Music is a lot more like solving an intricate puzzle with moments of pure, random creative bliss... whereas painting is much more purely random creative bliss with moments of problem solving.
The painting develops before my eyes, unfolding its surprises as it progresses. It is this which gives me the sense of complete liberty, and for this reason I am incapable of forming a plan or making a sketch beforehand.
My painting carries with it the message of pain.
Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.
I'd asked around 10 or 15 people for suggestions. Finally one lady friend asked the right question, 'Well, what do you love most?' That's how I started painting money.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
