#5b504e foreground

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

#5b504e background

To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.
