Imagination comes of not having things  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) You can’t take yourself too seriously  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) There’s no greatest moment in the arts. It’s a life, it’s a continuity thing. You can’t have a great moment because it’s spiritual. It’s a belief, it’s a calling. If you’re an artist, doing your own thing on your own, it’s while you’re doing it that counts. It’s a process. If you get too elated, you can get too depressed.  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I’ve met and sketched most of the great athletes from the past five decades and their movement, grace and energy have kept me captivated over the years. That’s what the ancient Greeks first saw and that’s what caught my interest  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) It’s a nice feeling to go out in the world and look for excellence - the best in man. My subject is very valid. It’s about people, and about life  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) The big shock of my life was Abstract Expressionism - Pollock, de Kooning, those guys. It changed my work. I was an academically trained student, and suddenly you could pour paint, smear it on, broom it on!  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I played an artist in a comedy called ‘Rooster.’ It was a zany film by Glen Larson, a friend who produced several successful television series including ‘Magnum PI  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) It has been difficult to hold onto many paintings but I have retained a few. Possibly the current favorite is titled ‘Big Band’ completed in 2005. It measures 13 feet x 9 feet. It has 18 nearly life size recognizable portraits of the biggest jazz stars that I knew and saw perform in the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s and includes Wynton Marsalis  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) My lovely wife Janet has been in a few paintings. She is basically a reserved woman who has never sought the limelight. She has always been there throughout my career and continues to be at my side  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) The most important thing is to just do it. If I work at a higher level I have responsibility to do better than what I’ve done before. Sometimes the best happens - beyond possibility. Just do it. Can’t worry about it  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) It’s not the act of arrogance to draw, it’s humbling - you must use your God-given talent. And of all the people I sketch, in most cases I feel I have to measure up to the subject  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) When I paint, I seriously consider the public presence of a person - the surface facade. I am less concerned with how people look when they wake up or how they act at home. A person’s public presence reflects his own efforts at image development  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I always stayed in tune with my own ambitions and attitudes and I’m still my intractable old self, for better or worse.  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) No, I never had any dreams. The process of art is a dream in itself. The artist just doesn’t... you work out something. It’s yours. You don’t have to go to sleep to do that. You do that on the canvas.  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) It’s been fun. I’ve had a lucky life. Art has made me pull the best out of myself.  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I’ve zeroed in on what you would call action and excellence... Everybody who does anything to try to succeed has to give the best of themselves, and art has made me pull the best out of myself.  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I had a go at changing history - maybe not all by myself - I fought at the battle of Normandy, I slogged through the Ardennes, and I celebrated the liberation of Paris on the streets with beautiful French girls throwing flowers at me. I said good-bye to my first true love and discovered what I really wanted to do with my life  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) Every time I started painting it was like a new experience, but they all came out the same  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) It has been difficult to hold onto many paintings but I have retained a few  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I hold doors open for all the women. Men can open the doors for themselves  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) As I turn 91... I have to admit my hours at the easel have diminished  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I can easily ignore my detractors and feel the people who respond favorably  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I love the passion you go through while you’re creating  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) No, I never had any dreams. The process of art is a dream in itself. The artist just doesn’t... you work out something. It’s yours. You don’t have to go to sleep to do that. You do that on the canvas  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) Eating is one of the great beauties in life. One of my favorite recreations... eating with friends, the service, the ambience  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I always stayed in tune with my own ambitions and attitudes and I’m still my intractable old self, for better or worse  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) The people who love my paintings, that respond to them the most, they’re spectators, they’re not viewers  (LeRoy Neiman Quotes) I draw all the time.
