Painting Quotations

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.
Wolfgang Puck

Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.
Plutarch

You cannot possibly invent painting all by yourself.
Pierre Bonnard

Lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting, and... stop thinking! Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to 'walk about' into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yes, what more do you want?
Wassily Kandinsky

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.
