"If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all."

You are smart and talented, but can also be moody. You have an argumentative personality and a quick temper, which often gets you into trouble. You are also a perfectionist, which can lead you to dissatisfaction. You have a strong will and dedication to making everything the best it can be.

Leonardo da Vinci

"Learning never exhausts the mind."

You are "marvellously endowed by heaven with beauty, grace and talent." You are graceful, kind, generous, an excellent conversationalist... most people just love you. You are also a perfectionist and super ADD, so usually you don't finish what you start. Oh, and you're a super-genius, too.


"All works, no matter what or by whom painted, are nothing but bagatelles and childish trifles... unless they are made and painted from life, and there can be nothing... better than to follow nature."

You live on the wild side. You have a turbulent personality, and wrestle between light and dark. Your reckless behavior may even have led you into some scrapes with authority.


"When one is painting one does not think."

You are easy-going and pleasure-loving. Your refined manners and social skills make you popular and respected.

Fra Angelico

"He who wishes to paint Christ's story must live with Christ."

You are very humble and you live a beautiful life. You are not one for self-indulgence. You are so dedicated to your work that you can be very emotionally attached to it, and you let that emotion shine through in what you do, inspiring others.
