The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.

#006bb5 background

It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.

#006bb5 shadow

An artist never really finishes his work; he merely abandons it.
