“What you do when you paint, you take a brush full of paint,
get paint on the picture, and you have faith”. Willem de Kooning
“I can never accomplish what I want – only what I would have wanted
had I thought of it beforehand”. Richard Diebenkorn
I’ve included these two quotes because first, they are from two artists whose work has always been a kind of beacon for my own, and second, because they so well sum up my feeling about what painting must be, no matter what style or subject. I guess all my art is of one piece because it comes from my sensibility and experience.
“Each brushstroke is a decision”. Robert Motherwell
