#3850a0 foreground

The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.

Lucian Freud
<p style="color: #3850a0">…</p>

#3850a0 background

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

#3850a0 shadow

The object isn't to make art, it's to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable.
