"Painting and art cannot be taught. You can save time if someone tells you to put blue and yellow together to make green, but the essence of painting is a self-disciplined activity that you have to learn by yourself."              - Romare Bearden


"It took me four years to paint like Raphael,
but a lifetime to paint like a child."
- Pablo Picasso
