"Art has a side effect...perfectionism"...BRUNI


"Instead of asking so many questions...try seeing, hearing, and observing with a quiet mind"



"ART is the only solution for oppression, repression, and confinement. The Artist is free - he transcends all physical limitations....BRUNI


In life, some Artists represent everyone except themselves. Their images or talents are a rare but important connection to something ancient, historical, or many times something prophetically spoken whose time is now. BRUNI's work is a passage or journey, if you will, that transcends the canvas and speaks, saying...Let there be LIFE! Whether past, present, or future each rendering lives creating a connection to her soul...if you don't believe me....check it out.

You find two extremes usually as cliches. One is that, "Oh, you’re a painter? Isn’t that wonderful. You’re sensitive. You’ve got all those wonderful, beautiful thoughts." And the other is "You’re a little crazy, aren’t you?"

...Robert Rauschenberg 1925-


"A whole person has walked with God, and wrestled with the devil" ...Carl Jung


"Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction...The hand of the Artist is the hand of the Matador"

...Pablo Picasso



"I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't  -  than to live my life as if there isn't a God, and die to find out there is"...Albert Camus



"Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We're afraid.”
“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We will fall!”
“Come to the edge.”
 And they came.
 And he pushed them.
 And they flew.

Guillaume Apollinaire,   1880-1918
French Poet, Philosopher



"There should be less talk; a preaching point is not a meeting point.  What do you do then?  Take a broom and clean someone's house.  That says enough"...Mother Teresa


"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and alot of courage - to move in the opposite direction"...Albert Einstein


“...human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves"...Gabriel Garcia Marquez


"It's OK not to know, but it's a crime not to want to know."

...Andre A. Jackson



"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become reality. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word"...Dr. Martin Luther King Jr


"The monopoly capitalists - even while employing purely empirical methods - weave around art a complicated web which converts it into a willing tool. The superstructure of society ordains the type of art in which the artist has to be educated. Rebels are subdued by its machinery and only rare talents may create their own work. The rest become shameless hacks or are crushed"... Ernesto Che Guevara


“It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams"...Gabriel Garcia Marquez


''Beauty is something wonderful and strange that the Artist fashions out of the chaos of the world in the torment of his soul"...William Somerset Maugham


"Life is merely a fraction of a second. An infinitely small amount of time to fulfill our desires, our dreams, our passions."...Paul Gauguin



“The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes" ...Marcel Proust



Myth: We have to save the earth.  

Frankly, the earth doesn't need to be saved.  Nature doesn't give a hoot if human beings are here or not.  The planet has survived cataclysmic and catastrophic changes for millions upon millions of years.  Over that time, it is widely believed, 99 percent of all species have come and gone while the planet has remained.  Saving the environment is really about saving our environment - making it safe for ourselves, our children, and the world as we know it. If more people saw the issue as one of saving themselves, we would probably see increased motivation and commitment to actually do so.

...Robert M. Lilienfeld, management consultant and author (b. 1953) and William L. Rathje, archaeologist and author (b. 1945)



“If God hadn't rested on Sunday, He would have had time to finish the world" ...Gabriel Garcia Marquez


"The deepest and most lifelong emotion has been expressed, and that is the reason they have taken so long to execute." ... Rembrandt Van Rijn 1606-1669


"I have never been able to carry out any work coolly. On the contrary it is done, so to speak, with my own blood. Anyone who looks at my works must be able to sense that"  ...Kathe Kollwitz 1867-1945


"Because I am free, unconditioned, whole, not the part, not the relative, but the whole Truth that is eternal, I desire those, who seek to understand me, to be free, not to follow me, not to make out of me a cage which will become a religion, a sect. Rather should they be free from all fears - from the fear of religion, from the fear of salvation, from the fear of spirituality, from the fear of love, from the fear of death, from the fear of life itself. As an artist paints a picture because he takes delight in that painting, because it is his self-expression, his glory, his well-being, so I do this - and not because I want anything from anyone."...J. Krishnamurti


"I’m not an abstractionist…I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions" ... Mark Rothko 1903-1970


"Personally, I believe very much in values of savagery; I mean: instinct, passion, mood, violence, madness"... Jean Dubuffet 1901-1985


"Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision—it is the seeing of the thing that makes it so. The world is waiting for men and women with vision—it is not interested in mere pictures. What people subconsciously are interested in is the expression of beauty, something that helps them through the humdrum day, something that shocks them out of themselves and something that makes them believe in the beauty and the glory of human existence"...Charles Hawthorne
