I do not want to dwell on what was. I don't have a clue what will be. I can only acknowledge what speaks to me now.

There is only one thing I fear in life, my friend. One day, the black will swallow the red. ​--Mark Rothko
I cry out for order and find it only in art. --Helen Hayes
Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. --Thomas Merton
The need to create art is more than can be put into words, because you have to release it from a place that can't be defined. 
--R L Estes
In nature, light creates the color. In the picture, color creates the light. --Hans Hofmann
Abstract art is not the creation of another reality, but the true vision of reality. --Piet Mondrian 
I have never been able to understand the artist whose image never changes. --Lee Krasner
I'd rather risk an ugly surprise than rely on things I know I can do. --Helen Frankenthaler
The big shock of my life was Abstract Expressionism - Pollock, de Kooning, those guys. It changed my work. I was an academically trained student, and suddenly you could pour paint, smear it on, broom it on. --LeRoy Neiman
One works without thinking how to work. --Jasper Johns
Everything starts from a dot. --Wassily Kandinsky
