David Hockney…2

 18Art has to move you and design does not, unless it’s a good design for a bus.
The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you’re an artist.
It is very good advice to believe only what an artist does, rather than what he says about his work.

David Hockney..1

I had always planned to make a large painting of the early spring, when the first leaves are at the bottom of the trees, and they seem to float in space in a wonderful way. But the arrival of spring can’t be done in one picture. David Hockney

Once something has outlived its usefulness in one area of life, its purpose for being in existence is no longer the same. The leaf that captures a stream of sunlight, and then transfers its energy to the tree, serves one purpose in the spring and summer, and another completely different one through the fall and winter.
