Art Is Action


One of my art groups was having a conversation about what motivation in creating art, and Shirley gave us some awesome quotes which I think I will hang around my Creativity Zone.

Art is Action

“Art is never finished, only abandoned.”
"Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art”
(Leonardo Da Vinci)

"In terms of art, the only real answer that I know of is to do it. If you don't do it, you don't know what might happen."
(Harry Callahan)

"One must always be careful
not to let one's work be covered with moss."

(Marc Chagall)

"If I rest, I rust."
(Placido Domingo)

And this quote doesn't have a lot to do with art (or maybe it has more...) but it has a lot to do with life.

"In order to form an immaculate member
of a flock of sheep one must, above all, be a sheep."

(Albert Einstein)
