#1979a7 foreground

It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.

Vincent Van Gogh
<p style="color: #1979a7">…</p>

#1979a7 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.

Mark Rothko

To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.
