Inspiration Sunday

Welcome to Inspiration Sunday.  I hope you have been enjoying the weekend.
I have some quotes from all different kinds of artists for you today.  Some you may not have heard of so I have some links attached to their names, so if you have any further interest.
I hope this will give you some inspiration for this coming week!

I have discovered that the unasked-for accident can be the salvation of what you are doing.  ~Stephen De Staebler

The further I go, the sorrier I am about how little I know:  it is this that bothers me the most.  ~Claude Monet

I begin to feel an enormous need to become savage and to create a new world.  ~Paul Gauguin

The artist himself may not think he is religious, but if he is sincere his sincerity in itself is religion.  ~Emily Carr

Tomorrow I will continue along with my research of each artist listed as having been in the WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution show in 2007 and I am now to the artists on the list who's last names begin with the letter "B".

I hope you enjoy the last few hours of your weekend.

'Til tomorrow!
