Clyde Aspevig - From the Advice category:

If I could pass anything on to the next generation, it would be to follow your passion, work hard, play, be curious about everything, read a lot, travel, explore, live, love and dig deep. And don't drink cheap wine. (Clyde Aspevig)

Clyde Aspevig - From the Colour category:

Clyde Aspevig - From the Environment category:

Clyde Aspevig - From the Possibilities category:

Even if it doesn't turn out, I'm testing possibilities... The great thing about oils is you can take it out. (Clyde Aspevig)

Clyde Aspevig - From the Reality category:

The more I paint out the details, the more real the paintings look to me. (Clyde Aspevig)

Clyde Aspevig - From the Selling category:

There are more buyers for great art than there are great works of art being created, so concentrate on quality, and don't raise prices faster than the market can bear. (Clyde Aspevig)
