What Different Artists Have Said About Flowers

Here you see the fourth group of flowers I have painted to celebrate World Watercolor Month. Read also the following thoughts on flowers, beautifully expressed by different artists: 

You’re here for a short visit only. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And make sure to paint the flowers along the way. ~Walter Hagen

Art is like a border of flowers along the course of civilization. ~Lincoln Steffens

Don’t fear the darkness. Flowers grow out of dark moments. ~Corita Kent

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. ~Claude Monet

I draw flowers every day and send them to my friends so they get fresh blooms every morning. ~David Hockney

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not. ~Georgia O’Keeffe
