Not worrying about the cost of materials and tools extends my artistic freedom. (Jim Rowe)

Jim Rowe - From the Success category:

Jim Rowe - From the Talent category:

If a person really believes they need some kind of special inherited talent or proper-sided brain functioning, this will interfere with their productivity. I don't want to know what side of the brain I am using. (Jim Rowe)

Jim Rowe - From the Technology category:

Make a small painting of what you want to do... and project it up on a white wall... The enlarged version is so changed that there is no way of just visualizing it in the brain... It's a whole new dimension in painting. (Jim Rowe)

Jim Rowe - From the Winning category:

I just paint to fulfill an urge. When I don't have the urge, I just don't paint. This is not some stupid contest. But if it is, I feel like the winner that came in last. (Jim Rowe)
