Creativity Quotes -- Studio Windows

My Studio Window (view from the street)
with creativity quotes
and "Straight from the Tube" paintings from the past

I have been feeling bad about not having any new work to put in my studio windows.  So, I decided to accept the fact that I wasn't going to be able to fix that problem any time soon, and came up with an alternative.

"You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have." --- Maya Angelou

I put creativity quotes (which I find inspiring) on the two easels, and put up two of my older works that have never been shown in my studio before.  These two paintings are from my "Straight from the Tube" phase, when I was using pure color and channeling Matisse and Peploe.

" Painting is ultimately about completing spaces.  In many ways, the beauty of one's life is also about completing spaces, if having breakfast is considered a space, or a walk in the woods, all the way to the attention one gives to a lifetime.  The more attention or beauty one gives to those spaces, the more depth and meaning the entire space may have."  --- Quang Ho

If you go by the windows, let me know what you think.
