12 Artist’s Quotes which will Ignite Your Creative Soul

Yes I’m guilty. I am a collector of motivational and inspirational quotes. It is a slight obsession of mine and definitely won’t be the last time I share them with you! I would apologise ahead of time… except that I know you secretly love them too ;).

Today I’m going to reveal my top twelve most inspirational quotes straight from the mouths of artists past. There are so many that are extraordinarily noteworthy but only a handful that light the fire in my own artists heart.

Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.

Claude Monet

I feel there is something unexplored

about woman that only a woman can explore.

Georgia O’Keefe

Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.

Pablo Picasso

Your profession is not what brings home your weekly pay-check, your profession is what you're put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.

Vincent Van Gogh

I was the first woman to paint cleanly, and that was the basis of my success. From a hundred pictures, mine will always stand out. And so the galleries began to hang my work in their best rooms, always in the middle, because my painting was attractive. It was precise. It was 'finished'.

Tamara De Lempicka

If I create from the heart, nearly everything works;

if from the head, almost nothing.

Marc Chagall

Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.

Claude Monet

Art is never finished only abandoned.

Leonardo Da Vinci

Painting is about the beauty of space and the power of containment.

Sam Francis

One can speak poetry just by arranging colours well.

Vincent Van Gogh

Art reveals who we are and who we long to be.

Erwin McManus

People discuss my art and pretend to understand as if it were

necessary to understand, when it's simply necessary to love.

Claude Monet

For me, these are absolutely the best of the best and I can feel the fire in the pit of my stomach just by reading over them! I hope you have had some enjoyment reading them yourself. If you'd like to share some of your own favourites, don't be shy and hit reply!

Be bold, be sexy, be fierce and be inspired!
