A-Z - Art

by way of introduction, i love to collect quotes. since i don't have a lot of time to devote to the A-Z challenge, i decided i would pick quotes that coincide with the day's letter.

(and when i talk about art, i consider writing in this category as well)

All art requires courage. ~Anne Tucker

God and other artists are always a little obscure. ~Oscar Wilde

For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh. ~Georges Rouault


Art is an adventure that never seems to end. ~Jason, Los Cerros Middle School, 1999



Art is the triumph over chaos. ~John Cheever

Okay, I need to give up my Bachelor's degree... lol. I didn't even think about Art and that is part of my degree (not all, I also have legal studies, English and a minor in communication but still... Art, all those studio classes and I forget about it on A day).

Good one. ;-D
