Painting is a means of self-enlightenment.

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

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.
