Paint Drop Artist Quote – Vincent van Gogh

Today's Paint Drop Artist Quote is by Vincent van Gogh. Although van Gogh sold only one painting during his lifetime and died quite young, he was a prolific painter, creating 900 known works. Today his style and mastery of color continues to inspire painters the world over. With the viewing public he is also one of the most famous painters in the world. I only recently realized that he originally believed he was meant to follow in his father's footprints and share his love of the gospel. Instead, he found his voice in painting. He was greatly influenced by the early Impressionists and Japanese prints, popular then in Paris. He internalized the philosophy and styling to create his own bold style.

Paint drops are how-tos from artists and for artists because everything is easier when you follow the directions. This quote reminds each of us to honor inner voice and ourselves. For me that is to acknowledge that creating is central to who I am.

The only time I feel alive is when I'm painting. - Vincent van Gogh
