#3f538c foreground

Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye.. it also includes the inner pictures of the soul.

Edvard Munch
<p style="color: #3f538c">…</p>

#3f538c 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
<p style="background-color: #3f538c">…</p>

#3f538c shadow

The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.

Auguste Rodin
