7 Motivational Quotes by Artists

Writer's get writer's block.
Painter's get painter's block.
Artists get artist's block.

Sometime's my creativity is blocked, and even though I want to be at my easel, paintbrush in hand, I simply can't express myself. When I'm experiencing artist's block, sometimes all I need are some inspirational words to release my creative energies, and allow my hands to express what is in my soul. I have many favorite artists, and here are some of my favorite artist's quotes that inspire me to paint.
