I paint for myself. I don't know how to do anything else, anyway. Also I have to earn my living, and occupy myself.

Francis Bacon

#6b6556 background

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.
