John Botts Quote!

"The interest in color is always present. A simple comment might be that where color seems least present, or most lacking in intensity, one finds more color."

A quote from John Botts, the artist who I swear kept me alive when I was a teenager, and who I am only now beginning to appreciate.

Now I'm going to have to do some research on someone who comes up with such an intriguing quote! ;)

I was a student of John Botts. I'm just now returning to painting. Two statements from him are in my head. 1. If your painting a tin can don't be intimidated by the can just paint it the way you want. 2. You'll paint when you have to. Well now I have to.
