Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.
It’s your world. Paint it the way you want it to be.
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.
An artist never really finishes his work, he merely abandons it.
The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.
An artist cannot speak about his art any more than a plant can discuss horticulture.
Great artists are people who find the way to be themselves in their art. Any sort of pretension induces mediocrity in art and life alike.
The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation.
