Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.

#999bc5 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.

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