#a8becb 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

#a8becb background

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