|Churchill Painting at the Easel, Simon Brushfield|
"At one side of the palette there is white, at the other black; and neither is ever used neat." ~ Winston Churchill
My last "Colorwork Meditation" (#13) focused on black. I planned (and I still do plan) that my next "Colorwork Meditation" (#14) will focus on white.
Funny thing is... I have started that "colorwork"-post-to-be twice, and it still is not happening... Truthfully, now that I have spent all that time searching for quotes on "white", I have found that a lot of them are actually quotes on "white and black" or "black and white". And, many are not so much about art as about racial relations (which is understandable) but I do not remember this (at all) when searching for "black" quotes.
(Maybe it's me and my searching?)
At this point, I would suggest that it does make a difference if you search for "white quotes" or "quotes on the color white" or even "artist's quotes on the color white".
Funny thing is... when I last went searching... I came upon the above quote by Winston Churchill. I never knew that Churchill painted.
That finding lead to this: "Although he is best known for his service as prime minister of Great Britain during World War II, Churchill was also a painter and produced many works of art over his lifetime."

And then, I saw this:
When Winston Churchill was asked to cut arts funding in favor of the war effort, he simply replied,
"Then what are we fighting for?"
