quotes by artists

  SOME QUOTES:
            (EGON SCHIELE) -
"Art cannot be modern. Art is primordially eternal."
"I am so rich that I must give myself away."

            (MAX ERNST) -                                                                                                  
"Painting is not for me either decorative amusement, or the plastic invention of felt reality; it must be every time: invention, discovery, revelation."
"The role of the painter . . . is to project that which sees itself in him."                (LEONARDO DaVINCI) -
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”    
“The painter has the Universe in his mind and hands.”     
 “Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence. ”    
“Learning never exhausts the mind.”      
“As you cannot do what you want, 
Want what you can do”                                                                  
“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.”                            
“once you have tasted the taste of sky, you will forever look up”                                             
“Truth at last cannot be hidden. Dissimulation is of no avail. Dissimulation is to no purpose before so great a judge. Falsehood puts on a mask. Nothing is hidden under the sun.”

Umbrellaed Muse

For Kaitlin Ann C.

Small scaled, 'Organic- Fortune & Balance Circles' Lino-Cuts (Run of 14, dual/multi-color set)

              ....I recently did this longer than usual series of linoleum cuts. Each print of two monotypes, of varying color by slight degrees, juxtaposition-ed beside one another. Of the run I came off with a set, here,  this sample/group layout-                                                                                                                                                                          

And individually-    



















My only regret I think would be that, never having enough watercolor, I might have added a nice tone to each one besides its seeming simple setup .So it goes..
