"Paint what you are, paint what you believe, paint what you feel." Ben Shahn
Nita Leland's Favorite Quotations on Expression

The chief function of color should be to serve expression. Henri Matisse

Fine works of art never grow old because the one thing that stamps them is feeling. Eugène Delacroix

We cannot express the light in nature because we have not the sun. We can only express the light we have in ourselves. Arthur Dove

Form is the outward expression of inner meaning. Wassily Kandinsky
