but one paints with emotion

Who told you that one paints with colors? One makes use of colors, but one paints with emotions. (Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin)

Only those who love color are admitted to its beauty and immanent presence. It affords utility to all, but unveils its deeper mysteries only to its devotees. (Johannes Itten)

If one says 'red' - the name of color - and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different. (Josef Albers)

 A special thank you to Robert Genn and his wonderful art quotes.
