Quote of the day 4-13-2010

Another Rosenquist quote for today. Reading this book has got plenty of remarks about the state of artists these days and I wanted to share some of his wisdom with all my friends on here.

"I felt as if the craft of traditional painting had gotten mislaid; you no longer learned your trade from a master painter, but from books and classes, and it occurred to me that looking for art in art schools was like looking for your wallet under a streetlamp when you hadn't lost it there."

Enjoy your day. Now go do something and be creative about it. Just don't hurt anyone in the process.

Quote of the day 4-12-2010

Today I'm just beginning my read of the James Rosenquist biography. The book is called "Painting Below Zero". I would put up a link to it somewhere but no one is giving me a percentage if you buy it from my link. ;-)

Anyway. I've perused it's contents and have now begun to truly read through it. I'm only 4 pages into it and I've come across a quote I would like to share with you.

"There's no scale in the brain. An image of the most colossal monument and the tiniest ant can rest side by side in your mind. The mundane and the bizarre can fuse into a language of images that float to the surface when you least expect it."



Already I'm finding more and more amazing thoughts from the mind of Rosenquist. I'm already rating this book 4 stars...I can't give it 5 already because that would be favoritism now wouldn't it. ;-)
