Francis Bacon “Portrait of George Dyer Talking”

As you work, the mood grows on you. There are certain images which suddenly get hold of me and I really want to do them. But it’s true to say that the excitement and possibilities are in the working and obviously can only come in the working.

-Francis Bacon



Maurice de Vlaminck “The River Seine at Chatou”

When I work I always find something.

-Maurice de Vlaminck



Winston Churchill “The Beach at Walmer”

Human beings are of two classes: those whose work is work and whose pleasure is pleasure; and those whose work and pleasure are one.

-Winston Churchill



Pablo Picasso “Girl with a Mandolin”

It is your work in life that is the ultimate seduction.

-Pablo Picasso



Wayne Thiebaud “Boston Cremes”

I’m a believer in the notion that artists who do good work believe in the ideas of extremes.

-Wayne Thiebaud
