I adore the theater and I am a painter. I think the two are made for a marriage of love. I will give all my soul to prove this once more.

Marc Chagall

I paint what cannot be photographed, that which comes from the imagination or from dreams, or from an unconscious drive.

Man Ray

Every good picture leaves the painter eager to start again, unsatisfied, inspired by the rich mine in which he is working, hoping for more energy, more vitality, more time - condemned to painting for life.

John Sloan

For an impressionist to paint from nature is not to paint the subject, but to realize sensations.

Paul Cezanne

Life obliges me to do something, so I paint.

Rene Magritte

Color possesses me. I don't have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour: Color and I are one. I am a painter.

Paul Klee

Most painting in the European tradition was painting the mask. Modern art rejected all that. Our subject matter was the person behind the mask.

Robert Motherwell

A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.

Michelangelo Buonarroti

Cubism is like standing at a certain point on a mountain and looking around. If you go higher, things will look different; if you go lower, again they will look different. It is a point of view.

Jacques Lipchitz

If no one ever took risks, Michaelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor.

Neil Simon

Do not help the quick moneymakers who have delusions about taking possession of classics by smearing them with paint.

Frank Capra

In painting, as in the other arts, there's not a single process, no matter how insignificant, which can be reasonably made into a formula. You come to nature with your theories, and she knocks them all flat.

Pierre auguste Renoir

If the painter works directly from nature, he ultimately looks for nothing but momentary effects; he does not try to compose, and soon he gets monotonous.

Pierre auguste Renoir

Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.

Edgar Degas

When one paints an ideal, one does not need to limit one's imagination.

Ellen Key

A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognize it?

Ernst Haas

If more than ten percent of the population likes a painting it should be burned, for it must be bad.

George Bernard Shaw

A box of crayons and a big sheet of paper provides a more expressive medium for kids than computerized paint programs.

Clifford Stoll

Life is painting a picture, not doing a sum.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

With every experience, you alone are painting your own canvas, thought by thought, choice by choice.

Oprah Winfrey

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.

Danny Kaye

If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

Vincent van Gogh

Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint on it you can.

Danny Kaye

A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.

Abraham Maslow

The greatest advances of civilization, whether in architecture or painting, in science and literature, in industry or agriculture, have never come from centralized government.

Milton Friedman

Sitting in the lap of the model you intend to paint never seemed to me to be the ideal location.

Julian Green

Lets tell young people the best books are yet to written; the best painting, the best government the best of everything is yet to be done by them.

John Erskine

The first hope of a painter who feels hopeful about painting is the hope that the painting will move, that it will live outside its frame.

Gertrude Stein

We got a lot better looks, penetrated and got shots in the paint.

Wil Smudde

It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.

Henry David Thoreau

I needed an outlet in high school and came across painting. I've actually been painting longer than I've been acting. A movie is a collaborative effort, and with painting you just have yourself.

James Franco

We send volunteers to paint over graffiti, but it bogs down when you have to go through a property manager.

Jennifer Roberts

My painting carries with it the message of pain.

Frida Kahlo

It's more of a creative outlet, a medium like paint. A lot of what they do is art.

Steve Witt

We want to try and shut down the inside game. We have to try and close the paint, which is what we tried to do all season, anyway.

Gordon Hartwell

It's quite a striking paint scheme.

John Engstrom

There is no forethought or editing when I paint. These covered canvases are all over my studio. When I begin to see an eye, a nose, the composition begins. It's all through trial and error. Like cooking without a recipe.

Harriet Wiseman

It's not just a coat of paint, ... We're taking a lot of the attributes from the mainframe and driving those across the entire server family.

Rich Lechner

Flip told us that he has scored more points in the paint than anybody in the league. That's unbelievable.

Antonio Mcdyess

I always pet a dog with my left hand because if he bit me I'd still have my right hand to paint with.

Juan Gris

The problem with lead paint is that even if the paint was put down in 1920 and has been painted over six times, the 1920 paint is still there. When it chips off, the 1920 paint can chip off, too.

Spencer Neth

The interest and the feelings are not due to colors; the lines of a painting that move us move us even more in a print.

Henri Rousseau

Because gold represents light to me. Gold and crystal. Because I need light for painting and I also need light to look. It's the most fascinating thing, how it changes.

Katinka De Montal

I used to paint model soldiers as a kid.

Carl Becker

I was a painter, perhaps, but I am not any longer a painter. I didn't paint for many, many years - but at least two or three decades.

Arnold Schoenberg

You can't restore the green house and not paint it green.

Rusty Womack

We were excited, ... We couldn't believe that the painting was actually on a truck headed for Colorado Springs when Ackerman called.

Cathy Wright

It wouldn't be right for me to clown around when I'm painting a president.

Norman Rockwell

The painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through.

Jackson Pollock

We'll have face painting and hula hoop games and other circus challenges, as well as novelty photo ops — things like that.

Leslie Brolin

We made several photos which will give me all the details I want if I conclude to paint the view.

Thomas Moran

We want it going somewhere where it will be taken care of properly and displayed properly. The painting and everything that would be involved is big.

Kevin Cox

A warm color on the wall is important. Paint is easy and fairly inexpensive.

Deborah Carpenter

I was very impressed with the paintings. The subject matter that she uses is very clear and her style of painting that I saw was something that really appealed to me.

Thomas Perry

Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting with the gift of speech.


Painting: The art of protecting flat surfaces from the weather and exposing them to the critic.

Ambrose Bierce

It was Stan who really showed me how to paint on film strips.

Steve Hidinger

We wanted to bump it up a notch. It's a very interactive show. I will still be in the audience and will make sure we'll have fun. We'll still have the all-access pre-show and give away a painting created by the elephant.

Jon Weiss

A painting in a museum hears more ridiculous opinions than anything else in the world.

Edmond de Goncourt

It's not your painting anymore. It stopped being your painting the moment that you finished it.

Jeff Melvoin

The painting is then a whole other part of the intricate ordeal.

Leo Lampone

Aren't the artists brave to go out and paint a sea as rough as that? I don't see how he kept his canvas dry.

Ruth Draper

We made a lot of mistakes when we went to their place. We had 29 turnovers and didn't shoot well from the paint. Now we're more familiar with our game versus their game and the good news is we get them at home.

Amber Daulbaugh

I usually just ask them for a picture of their pet. It takes a lot longer to try to paint an animal that wants to move around.

Melanie Osborne

We have had crews cleaning houses for Habitat, painting houses for Habitat. We've had people out at Wal-Mart collecting food for Habitat.

Rev. Terry Peele

All that's left is some pink paint from the pig.

Robert Garrison

We believe the letter was sent by someone who knows where the painting is, if the letter writer didn't have it him or herself.

Jim Margolin

Stain it. You don't want to paint wood ? it's going to peel.

Tina Herbert

I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.

Frida Kahlo

I had completely forgotten about the painting.

John Elderfield

My older sister and I both were crazy about drawing. When we were 4 or 5 years old, we were already painting anything we could find.

Chiqui Ezcurra Muller

We did not do a good job of stopping them inside at all. In the paint, we lost the game in there. They hit some big 3s, but we lost it inside.

Steve Ottoson

He's already shown that he can appeal to Republicans. They'll try to paint him as a liberal, tax-and-spend guy, but they are going to find out the old labels just won't fly anymore.

Dave Lane

What is hope? nothing but the paint on the face of Existence; the least touch of truth rubs it off, and then we see what a hollow-cheeked harlot we have got hold of.

Lord Byron

There's no other way to paint this. It killed Canada.

Ron Maclean

For this project, and for the style we chose to do it in, the new paint worked beautifully.

Patsy Smith

We were out of sync the whole game. We couldn't get going on offense and we gave up too many points in the paint. We couldn't control the boards. When you can't control the boards, you can't run.

Karim Nohra

These instruments don't care if it's blood or paint thinner to detect color.

Mary Freeman

We're attempting to paint the streets green.

Mary Harrington

We get our ideas from everywhere. I see color combinations in a painting, or in nature. I keep my old 45-millimeter Nikon camera handy so that I can record what inspires me along the way. We both travel with cameras.

Lisa Biondi

We were out here for six months covered in drywall dust, covered in paint, covered in plaster. We put in our blood, sweat and tears.

Yis Gigay

I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.

Frida Kahlo

An artist took that picture and made a painting of Chris carrying the girl. It has the ruins of the Trade Center in the background. It's a great painting. I was lucky to get a lithograph of the painting. That picture has made its way around the country.

Charlie Amoroso

People stop and say 'Why are you painting on a building?'

Bob Murray

They try to paint it as easy as they can.

Roy Cervantes

Both teams have really good defenses. They have one big girl (Brittany Brown) who stays in the paint a lot. They also have a few shooters, but I'm not nervous.

Megan Braby

This is sun printing. You put the paint on, you put the actual leaves on, and where the leaves are in the sun, then it turns a lighter color.

Lucy Silliman

We just weren't moving our feet well. We gave up entirely too many points in the paint. We fouled way too much.

Lonnie Gaylor

And that painting is what she came up with. She didn't really talk about her drawings very much. She was quiet and really wasn't sure how to express herself verbally, but she could do it with her art.

Vincie Walker

If your Rembrandt painting weighs ten pounds, you're going to get $6 for it if it's damaged or destroyed, ... not worth anything.

George Bennett

Women are not in love with me but with the picture of me on the screen. I am merely the canvas on which women paint their dreams.

Rudolph Valentino

Harmer played a great game. She was playing aggressive basketball and getting into the paint.

Keith Flood

All the woodwork was painted a dark brown. So we had to deal with the issue of paint first.

Joanne Milnor

I would advise young artists . . . to paint as they can, as long as they can, without being afraid of painting badly . . . . If their painting doesn't improve by itself, it means that nothing can be done - and I wouldn't do anything!

Claude Monet

I've got my bachelor of fine arts degree from USF, so I may just take an extended vacation, work, paint and then go for the graduate degree so I can keep painting and maybe get an art teaching degree.

Aaron Hagan

These data paint a pretty clear picture for our leaders, ... My message to Canadians, and to our political leaders: the clock is ticking, and it is ticking ominously.

Ruth Collins

It's hard to work in paint. Everybody wants paint to die.

Keith Hammersmith

I paint from the top down. From the sky, then the mountains, then the hills, then the houses, then the cattle, and then the people.

Grandma Moses

I'm not sure what he meant by that. I'm not sure I want to know. I think he had too much spray paint.

Roger Wilko

It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it.

Steven Wright

Our backdoor cuts helped, but what I was really pleased with was our points in the paint.

Jeff Laing

Our offense against the man-to-man is not as good as our zone offense. We could not get anything to fall. We had a lot of opportunities inside the paint and, if you can't capitalize on those, they don't come easier than that.

Janet Smith

Most artists are surrealists.. always dreaming something and then they paint it.

Dong Kingman

Paint me an eternal tea-pot, for I usually drink tea from eight o'clock at night to four o'clock in the morning.

Thomas De Quincey

You cannot slander human nature; it is worse than words can paint it.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

We gutted it and started fresh. We did all our own staining and painting.

Dennis Chandler

They're going to freshen the paint and allow it to be a through and right-turn lane.

Debbie Tower

When I get out of the paint, it opens things up for my teammates. If they collapse on me and we hit other people, we get really great shots.

Kristen Kovesdy

He?s a difference maker. Whenever things got tight, he either got to the foul line or he made some tough shots in the paint.

Mark Fowler

Their strategy has been to clearly paint a rosy picture of the city and do their underhanded fighting outside the paid media.

Christy Setzer

We'll have a group of artists in different locations outside the center, painting in different mediums. A lot of people like to watch artists work.

Lynne Salisbury

But we didn't get any stops. That's what I was begging for. ... We know what they do, we know what we needed to stop -- points in the paint. That's where they're good. We needed to pack it in there and get the stops.

Christy Mckinney

None of these worlds was incompatible. All of these people were around, and if you were at all interested in painting, poetry, or dance, you met them.

James Tenney

He's really quite an incredible guy, ... He was very excited when he learned his painting would be in the (Princeton University Art Museum) gallery.

Sandra Miller

It does, however, paint a challenging picture for our local authorities and it is clear that they need more support to translate willingness into action.

Philip Sellwood

We weren't very quick to the ball (against LMU). They were much more aggressive. They got way too many points in the paint.

Brandon Hogan

Our focus was getting the ball inside. We had a sizeable advantage in the paint and exploited it. I thought the guards did a great job of identifying that and getting the ball inside.

Chris Guess

If you remove these lines in the painting, the colors are no longer effective.

Henri Rousseau

Painting is a nail to which I fasten my ideas.

Georges Braque

The guards were doing a great job of getting to the paint and passing it to me, and I just made the extra pass.

Julian Wright

I see architecture not as Gropius did, as a moral venture, as truth, but as invention, in the same way that poetry or music or painting is invention.

Michael Graves

Mostly, though, I like to paint.

Cleo Moore

There's nothing like it that can combine the things that are there, ... The art of drawing and painting ... music, dance, storytelling. All of these things in one package.

Marc Davis

To paint comic books as childish and illiterate is lazy. A lot of comic books are very literate - unlike most films.

Alan Moore

Every painting has a life story, and part of the story of this Monet is an extremely painful one. However, its latest chapters may be triumphant.

Malcolm Rogers

If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal.

Norman Vincent Peale

Landscape is to American painting what sex and psychoanalysis are to the American novel.

Robert Hughes

In English competition, no one shows Paints and Jazzie is a Paint pony. She is beautiful, but I just didn't feel that she would do all that well.

Lisa Dworkin

We have been getting a lot of compliments. In the front lobby we've moved some things around and the Park & Rec. has had some of their guys in here painting and doing things to make it have more of a Waltham feel. The MDC really wouldn't let us do anything like that.

Tony Romano

Our job is to get it inside. The outside shot was there, but we needed to keep scoring in the paint.

Jonathan Pascley

[Her confusion grew. She didn't know what to paint other than landscapes, and they did nothing to inspire her.] I was always desperate, ... Time was passing ... . Then Trey Friedman, a mentor, said, 'Just paint.'

Frank Mullins

I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

Andrew Wyeth

Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend.

John Singer Sargent

Since that day, I have been a different person, ... and my painting has brought me more joy.

Joan Rankin

Every time we got them in the paint, we felt that was a strong point. We wanted to keep going at them.

Richard Hendrix

My neighbor hired someone to paint his front door. He's known throughout the country in his field, but it's not painting.

Lisa Hegland

She made this amazing art. She never made a painting that is dark. She wanted to get people high.

Dana Rust

Just let me paint for you.

Harry Hamlin

I never knew how dangerous art could be because if it wasn't, why would someone break into my studio and throw acid on my painting? Luckily, I was not in the studio.

Abelina Galustian

The difference was that they were able to score baskets in the paint late in the game.

Sean Brown

If you're a real artist it would take more determination to subdue the desire to paint.

Michael Bingham

She does have some aspirations to be an artist. She's participated in a duck painting contest and got a ribbon for it.

Bruce Divaccaro

And we came back one day, and some guy climbed up there and changed that into G-O-D for God. And we had to go re-paint it.

Clay Condit

It's just a chess match when we play them, and we take a lot of their stuff away that other people can't, and they're actually able to guard us and keep us out of the paint.

Chris Lowery

Signage has been placed in the middle of the road to make drivers more aware. We had the city paint the crosswalks white and fluorescent green.

Mark Fletcher

I think it was pretty neutral from a rand perspective but he did a paint pretty optimistic outlook for the rand.

Michael Keenan

We got off to a really bad start. But we made some minor adjustments and began to show more energy in the paint.

Patti Mccormack

Although some environmental products are a little more expensive, the paint isn't. Painting contractors love it, because they have to suffer the fumes every day. And the quality is excellent.

Joe Silver

They most certainly have a size advantage on us. Their guards are not very tall, but they are tough in the paint.

Brandy Corbett

Painting is the grandchild of nature. It is related to God.


He just has a nose for the ball, and it doesn't matter if it is on the wing or anywhere around the paint. We've played a couple of big guys this year, but none were as talented as (Green).

Andrew Kilcrease

I can envision the finished painting before I start. I read occasionally about an artist who says I sit before my canvas and I don't know what I'm going to do. I don't believe that.

William North

If you know somethin' well, you can always paint it [but] people would be better off buyin' chickens.

Anna Mary Robertson Moses

It was a very hard fought victory. Dee was fantastic and made the big plays when we needed them and Natalie King played an excellent game. Natalie has given us another force inside and lately has been our most consistent player in the paint.

Freddie Leathers

In Brazil, we grow up with Carnival. People paint their private parts and go dancing in the street.

Dannielli Marcelino

We defended him as hard as we could; but he made a lot of tough shots in the paint against us.

Anthony Lewis

I am trying to paint a picture of hope. They have always been a teacher whether they realize it or not.

Asa Hilliard

No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.

Claude Monet

We'd like to maintain it, but we're not going to. We're going to keep it decent, but like I said, we're not going to paint it and have them throw us out in six months or three days.

Ray Owens

It doesn't make much difference how the paint is put on as long as something has been said. Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement.

Jackson Pollock

We leave David close to the paint and let the other guys gamble a bit defensively. Usually, he'll deter enough shots underneath to make a difference down there.

Joe Katich

He continues to make prints until 1665. So he is simultaneously painting, drawing and making prints.

Kristin Spangenberg

A painting that is well composed is half finished.

Pierre Bonnard

People raising families don't know you can't have a painting with a Bible in it (in City Hall). The city never would have done this if we were not in such a climate of fear.

Lloyd Marcus

My initial reaction was that choreographing in the code of points is painting by numbers with a straitjacket on. But I'm getting used to it.

Lori Nichol

Painting is an attempt to come to terms with life. There are as many solutions as there are human beings.

George Tooker

When someone buys a painting of mine and they fall in love with it, I hope they fall in love with it every time they look at it. That's why I paint. That's why I sell.

Jane Gillette

See how the intense heat from the fire affected the paint?

Larry Bailey

I'm an outdoor painter painting from life. All of my paintings are oil paintings. They are characterized by short brush strokes and bright light and use of complimentary colors.

William North

There will be games for the kids, a blow-up bounce game and face painting.

Rita Johnson

We didn't control the paint. Everything they did was because of their dribble penetration and their ability to rebound.

Larry Just

A painter should not paint what he sees but what should be seen.

Paul Valery

Each painting has its own way of evolving...When the painting is finished, the subject reaveals itself.

William Baziotes

The painter turns a poem into a painting; the musician sets a picture to music.

Robert A. Schumann

Vijay has the personality of paint drying.

Paul Ballard

We started getting better looks. We got better shots (in the paint), so when that happens you get good shots from the perimeter.

Jeff Brustad

Landry was a revelation in the paint last year, able to use bulk and a bit of explosiveness to make up the 2-3 inches he gives away every night in the Big Ten.

Jonathan Watters

We really haven't nailed down exactly what the paint skin is going to be on it, ... but it's going to be a good-looking bike.

Tony Anderson

I just find it astonishing that lead, which has been banned from paint, still finds its way in children's toys.

Nancy Cowles

Painting and calligraphy make people calm and put them in the right frame of mind.

Fei Junlong

When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art.

Paul Cezanne

That big kid, No. 53, I don?t know his name. He got some points in the paint on us. He had eight at halftime. He just lowered his shoulder and went (to the basket).

Markus Okeson

We found some pieces of the floor that had orange paint still on them.

Jamey Robbins

Painting is just like a guy playing an instrument; it's something to look forward to the next day. When I was painting in Dixon, I was out of the place . . . and I made some money selling paintings.

Harry Aleman

Engineering, medicine, business, architecture and painting are concerned not with the necessary but with the contingent - not with how things are but with how they might be - in short, with design.

Herbert Simon

A man of eighty has outlived probably three new schools of painting, two of architecture and poetry and a hundred in dress.

Joyce Carey

It looks bad. It's only witness tampering if you attempt to impact their testimony. But he's come within a coat of paint of doing that.

Brian Wice

I said on the bus that I wasn't going to give up any easy lay-ups in the paint and that somebody was going to have to dunk on me. That's the first time I've ever been dunked on and I'll admit it, I got dunked on.

Mike Flowers

At first I thought you paint only when inspired, ... I'd do nothing, then I'd paint 10 paintings in a week. Then I'd fret.

Frank Mullins

I don't feel like I'm painting. I feel like I'm doing an investigation of eternity.

Melba Martinez

A ship is always referred to as she because it costs so much to keep one in paint and powder.

Chester W. Nimitz

When you get up there, it's just so peaceful and you just want to capture it. As many times as you paint it, it's always changing.

Juanita Longwell

Painting is silent poetry and poetry spoken, painting.


They were trying to pound the ball in the paint. We were working on helping, but we were helping a little too much.

Beth Dunkenberger

We gave them entirely too many easy points in the paint. We have to work on our defense. We had to fight for our points and then at the other end, we gave them easy points.

Bobby Renzi

When you see a show like this, I think it will make you care a lot more about art. It might make someone go start painting, inspire them to learn about an artist or start buying art.

Sangram Majumdar

As I get older my husband asks me why I don't give up painting, but I can't. If I'm not in the hospital, I'm here. It just means a lot to me.

Dolores Smitley

When they were both older artists, they had reached a kind of eminence and recognized that they were truly pre-eminent in their generations, and they had experiences, they had a notion of painting which nobody else shared.

John Elderfield

The work we do is as demanding as any of the great painters because nothing that happens on the page of a comic is accidental. It has to be imagined first in your mind before you do it. Those of us who know something about the art of painting know that working on a canvas, very often a lot of serendipitous things happen that work to the advantage of the painter ultimately.

Will Eisner

They were too strong for us in the paint. They got a lot of offensive rebounds, and that hurt us.

Chris Spivey
