Perhaps one of these greats will get your art juices flowing. I especially appreciate Van Gogh's reminder everyone may get discouraged and frustrated at times. Pick up your tools, quiet the inner critic, and continue your work.

"You can never do too much drawing." Jacopo Tintoretto (1518-1594) "Do not fail, as you go on, to draw something every day, for no matter how little it is, it will be well worth while, and it will do you a world of good." Cennino Cennini (1370-1440) "A drawing is simply a line going for a walk." Paul Klee (1879 - 1940) "You can't do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh." John Singer Sargent (1856 - 1925) "I have learned that what I have not drawn, I have never really seen" Frederick Franck (1909 - 2006) "In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing." Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890)
