Ralph Steiner

Eventually I discovered for myself the utterly simple prescription for creativity; be intensely yourself. Don't try to be outstanding; don't try to be a success;don't try to do pictures for others to look at- just please yourself.More Ralph Steiner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

So I take the picture for them.More Ralph Steiner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
