Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.

#5a5956 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.

As practice makes perfect, I cannot but make progress; each drawing one makes, each study one paints, is a step forward.
