In 2017, because of the dramatic increase of threats to the creative and global humanity I choose to believe in, I now include quotations that intend to creatively challenge forces I find destructive. These quotes are meant to arm you with awareness and thinking to continue being your best artist in challenging times”

Art of Quotation is my library of thoughts from artists great and little known, past and present.
My purpose is to inspire, challenge, provoke and question just what art is, why we make it, how we make it and just what it means to be an artist.
You may not agree with all the thoughts that are shared here and I welcome all comments. Of course these quotations are colored with the era and context of the artist I am quoting. I choose each quote based on some truth I believe will be of interest to you in the here and now as you journey down your own path to becoming an artist.
When possible the images accompanying each quotation are either by the artist or of the artist. The images are used here with the intention of falling under the fair use doctrine:
