Jennifer Johnston
In the public, it seems to be painted that when minorities get pregnant, they need to get abortions, especially when it comes to teen pregnancy. It’s like, when black girls are pregnant, it’s like a statistic, but when white girls get pregnant, they get a TV show.
Benjamin Watson
Sometimes magnificent visual art takes root in the humblest of soils. Advertisements painted on old barns, tattoos, fruit crate labels, hot rod embellishments – all these media and many other non-galleried forms have hosted and fostered esthetic delights that satisfy any rigorous definition of art.
Paul Di Filippo
I view anything on this farm as model. I actually painted Union Rags as a yearling.
Jamie Wyeth
I hate being looked at. Can’t stand it. I know, I know – I picked the wrong career. I should have been a doctor. If you play certain parts you have this nice face painted on you, and then you have feel as if you have a responsibility to this idea of being beautiful. I hate that about our business.

Chris Raschka
Living and working for four decades in a Bologna apartment and studio he shared with his unwed sisters, Morandi painted little but bottles, boxes, jars, and vases. Yet like that of Chardin and the underappreciated William Nicholson, Morandi’s work seems to slow down time and show you things you’ve never seen before.
Jerry Saltz
We were shooting a scene of the Phoenix Ashram in South Africa, but the set was in India. All the donkeys in the vicinity were painted black and white to look like zebras in case one of them strayed into the scene so that it would look like South Africa.
Rohini Hattangadi
I just woke up one morning, and I painted my Maybach red – I wrapped it, matter of fact, red – and I thought, ‘I might as well change my album to ‘Still Brazy’ ’cause I gotta be real with myself.’
I came to the plain fields of Ohio with pictures painted by Hollywood movies and the works of Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. None of them had much to say, if at all, about Dayton, Ohio.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
I rented a house in Favignana, off the coast of Sicily, in the mid or late ’90s. There was a revolving door of visiting friends and family – we played games, painted our faces, went swimming naked, cooked big meals, rode around on motorini, and had great cappuccinos.
Amber Valletta
When I played Gollum in ‘Lord of the Rings,’ if I was climbing up the side of a mountain, which I physically did, you know, I was on every single occasion swimming through streams, all of that, that wasn’t captured.

John Battelle
When we founded Facebook, we put a lot of hours into it and worked hard every day. ‘The Social Network’ painted this picture that we were partying all the time, when really we only attended 2 or 3 parties during Facebook’s first year.
Dustin Moskovitz
Things were sort of Bohemian in Montmartre – one lived, one painted, one was a painter – all that doesn’t mean anything, fundamentally.

I just bought a Jeep painted like an American flag. No one better question how patriotic I am.

I've painted in the past, but I only average about one

Mike Mignola
You may name a bronze statue ‘Liberty,’ or a painted figure in a city hall ‘Commerce,’ or a marble form in a temple ‘Athene’ or ‘Venus;’ but what is really there is only a representation of a single woman.
George Edward Woodberry

Lucian Freud
You go through at least the first two years of Star Trek and you find some amazing stuff. Everything that was going on Gene put into the series. He just put strange costumes on the actors and painted them funny colours and left the same situation in.
Majel Barrett
I was never a hugely successful theatre designer. I painted a lot of scenery and did the lighting, and my lighting business grew out of that.
Kevin McCloud
This would be a distortion of their meaning, since the pictures are intimate and intense, and are the opposite of what is decorative; and have been painted in a scale of normal living rather than an institutional scale.
Mark Rothko
I would have been a visual artist. When I was in high school, that was one of the things… I had to make a decision what I was going to go to college for, and at the time, I also painted and sculpted. I got more attention for my performing, so I thought that was a better idea.
Josh Young
Musical theater is great; you get painted up, you get to play princesses and witches, and you sing. The joy alone of that can really carry a lot.
Chris Pine
I wanted to restore an ancient house in Kent, and that’s what I did. It was a heap – this Tudor building with the beams painted lime green, so hideous.
