In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
<p style="color: #6a747a">…</p>

#6a747a 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

#6a747a shadow

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