Quotes from a master

As I am working on the "Masters" series of portraits and painting Pablo Picasso, here are quotes I found interesting - "Inspiration does exist, but it must find you working." 

#1. "The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web." -Pablo Picasso 
Picasso said: "A piece of space-dust falls on your head once every day... With every breath, we inhale a bit of the story of our universe, our planet's past and future, the smells and stories of the world around us, even the seeds of life."

#2. "If only we could pull out our brain and use only our eyes." -Pablo Picasso  
Picasso said: "My hand tells me what I'm thinking."

#3. "If I paint a wild horse, you might not see the horse... but surely you will see the wildness!" -Pablo Picasso

#4. "To know what you're going to draw, you have to begin drawing." -Pablo Picasso

#5. "The more technique you have the less you have to worry about it. The more technique there is the less there is." -Pablo Picasso

#6. "I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it." -Pablo Picasso
Picasso said: "He can who thinks he can, and he can't who thinks he can't. This is an inexorable, indisputable law."

#7. "In art intentions are not sufficient and, as we say in Spanish, love must be proved by deeds and not by reasons. What one does is what counts and not what one had the intention of doing." -Pablo Picasso
