A painter should not only paint what he sees before him, but also what he sees within himself.
~ C.W. Eckersberg



You would’t be an artist if you didn’t want to share an experience, a thought.
~ David Hockney



I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way —
things I had no words for.
~ Georgia O’Keeffee

~ Rachel Carson
