For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.

Georges Rouault

There is no must in art because art is free.

Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.
