#959ba9 foreground

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

#959ba9 background

Art is the stored honey of the human soul.

Theodore Dreiser
