There are moments when something inside speaks so strongly, and at that
moment I know it’s the beginning of a new painting. Light and shadows are
always the loudest voice with subjects, shapes, and colors whispering in harmony.
There’s a sense of an overwhelming need to apply the composition to a canvas.
The greatest satisfaction is laying down the brush, stepping back, and seeing
what has been created from the soul.
First, I must paint for myself and only then, the rest will fall into place.
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
Henry Ward Beecher
