#a8afb2 foreground

If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.

Marc Chagall
<p style="color: #a8afb2">…</p>

#a8afb2 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.

Mark Rothko
<p style="background-color: #a8afb2">…</p>

#a8afb2 shadow

A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

Paul Cezanne
