#aab9de foreground

The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.

#aab9de 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.

The holy grail is to spend less time making the picture than it takes people to look at it.
