Artist Notecards

When my husband goes on business trips he always brings “presents” home for me…usually hotel soaps and other amenities! This time he surprised me with a set of Artists Notecards that I think are so fun!  From left to right are Claude Monet, Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali, and Vincent Van Gogh.  Included in the set are stickers with quotes from these artists.  You can guess who said, “For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”  I think it was Van Gogh.  I’m not sure which artist stated, “If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint’, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”  Sound advice if you ask me!  And for those artists who are always worried that someone is stealing their ideas and copying their work; “Those who do not want to imitate, produce nothing.”  That truly sounds like something Picasso would say…after all, it was Pablo who stated, “Good artists copy, great artists steal.”
