“After all, the object is not to make art, but to be in the wonderful state which makes art inevitable.”
― Robert Henri

"If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint" 
― Edward Hopper

“No rules will enable a painter coldly to construct chromatic compositions…the constant study of color in nature and in the works of great colorists will do much, but even more important still is the possession of a natural feeing for what may be called the poetry of color, which leads the artist almost instinctively to seize on color melodies as they occur in nature, and afterward to reproduce them on canvas, with such additions or modifications as his feeling for color impels him to make.”

— Ogden Rood, artist and physicist
