"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." L.M. Montgomery
I'm always amazed at Walter Foster's vintage titles: not only are they beautiful and rustic but the artistic tips and advice they provide are still just as relevant as when they were first printed! It goes to show that certain skills—like painting portraits—are truly timeless.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen. ~Leonardo da Vinci
"Don't grow up too quickly, lest you forget how much you love the beach." Michelle Held
"The earth laughs in flowers." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The more you practice, the less thinking you will have to do, which allows you to focus on the emotion of the painting. To me, feeling and emotion are the two most important aspects of the painting process. I express myself through painting in a way I can't with words. My portraits capture emotion and feeling in the subjects and speak for them just as clearly as words. With a little practice, you too can master this art!" ~Susan Miller Bradbury
"Everything you can imagine is real." Pablo Picasso
