#f2b400 foreground

The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.

Lucian Freud

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.

Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.
