Art Quotes

Quotes are a lazy bloggers saving grace. In lieu of a formal post, here are some of my favorites.



As I am currently suffering from a bad case of writers block, I have decided to dial in this weeks entry.

That said, here are some of my favorite art and arts related quotes…bring, bring:
