Quotes for Art www.tammytutterow.com | Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.  Mother Teresa

Quotes and great phrases often inspire my art. Sometimes the quote comes first, and sometimes it is the art that puts me on a search for just the right words.

If you are like me and love great words, I hope you will enjoy the week’s selection of Quotes for Art. I hope they inspire you as you carve out time to create art in the coming week. [Read more…]
