#6a737d foreground

Painting is the grandchild of nature. It is related to God.

Rembrandt
<p style="color: #6a737d">…</p>

#6a737d 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

#6a737d shadow

Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.
