I thought I’d keep it light today, as it is Friday. So I collected these art quotes for you. I had to through a few funny ones in there, that’s just how I do it 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy and share them. Feel free to leave a comment if there’s one you really resonate with.

    Very interesting and some very meaningful quotes that I had to read a couple of times to get the message. My favourite ‘funny’ quote was: ” Every parent is an artist, but not every artist is apparent.” – Eric Micha’el Leventhal – Sneaky! Brought a smile.

    The Bruce Lee quote is so relevant to every area of life. Be true to who you are and forget about trying to be like someone else.

    Thanks for the compiling these quotations.
