Quotes to inspire your creative soul

Today is Rembrandt's 407th birthday!!



He's has amazing work and some great quotes too.




Choose only one master.. Nature.

Painting is the grandchild of nature. It is related to God.

Practice what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know.




and I found a few other great quotes that inspire as well


“Art is not a thing, it is a way.” ~Elbert Hubbard

“Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul — and you answer.” ~Terri Guillemets

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” ~Leonardo da Vinci

“You don’t make art, you find it” ~Pablo Picasso

“Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.” ~Lou Dorfsman




Do you have a favorite Rembrandt piece?? Or another  quote or artist that inspires you creatively?

  10. Art, poetry, and music all touch my soul in a way nothing else can. Nature is also sublime. Several of my kids are either artists, composers, photographers of nature etc. They inspire me.
