A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

Enjoy Life! - Life is too short!.
If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.

Dear Children,
In whatever one does there must be a relationship between the eye and the heart. The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

Art is a technique of communication. There is no perfect time to write. There's only now. Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music. Art is a passion or it is nothing. Art is to me the glorification of the human spirit, and as such it is the cultural documentation of the time in which it is produced. Art must be an expression of love or it is nothing.

Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast, you also miss the sense of where you are going and why. Man can learn nothing except by going from the known to the unknown. Every man's work, whether it be literature or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself. Painting is just another way of diary. Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own keeping a nature into his pictures.

Have a lovely day!
