I am crazy about good, thought provoking quotes. What could be better than some good, thought provoking quotes about art??!! I am a real believer in the fact that we do not give enough credit to, or trust our intuition enough. All I know is that since I have been able to let go and trust my instincts again, my work has never been better (and more fun to produce). I have collected a bit of inspiration for art and life. EnjoyYou have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

-Lois GrubergerThoughts without content are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind.

-Henri MatisseIntellect confuses intuition.
-Piet MondrianIntuition is neither the ability to engage prophecy nor a means of avoiding financial loss or painful relationships. It is actually the ability to use energy data to make decisions in the immediate moment.
Logic and intellect can take an artist to the dance, but intuition and creativity are the dance itself.
-Gregory PackardWhat an artist makes of painting is not so much a matter of freely choosing among a variety of options as it is a matter of making the most of a few intuitions that are absolutely one's own. Every time a painter paints we want to see what those intuitions are.
-Jed PerlI try to begin a painting with as few restrictions as possible and let intuition be my guide, as I respond to what is developing on the painting surface.
-Marilyn Hughey PhillisThe subliminal self is in no way inferior to the conscious self. It knows how to choose and to divine.
-Henri PoincareI don't believe in intuition. When you get sudden flashes of perception, it is just the brain working faster than usual. But you've been getting ready to know it for a long time, and when it comes, you feel you've known it always.
-Katherine Anne Porter
-RumiI know intuitively when the work is right, no training can teach you this, it is simply a matter of feeling.
The apprehension of... values is intuitive; but it is not a built-in intuition, not something with which one is born. Intuition in art is actually the result of... prolonged tuition.
