Painting requires… concentration; difficult decisions and critical gesture; the inner sense of the right action in the right moment.
Facing a blank canvas and making that first mark is like flying in a dream. You run uphill your legs move like their filled with lead, flapping your arms at the edge of the precipice you take a deep breath and take off soaring into flight.
"Every intelligent painter carries around the whole culture of modern painting in his head. It is his real subject, of which anything he paints is both an homage and a critique." –Robert Motherwell
