Here is one of my favorite quotes by any artist:

[bra_blockquote align=”]”Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.” -Claude Monet [/bra_blockquote]

Only an artist on the level of Monet can get away with saying “love” in the same sentence as describing one’s own work, but we all want to.
