I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to,
and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original:
whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before)
you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the world around you
because the greatest secrets are always hidden
in the most unlikely places.

If just one person believes in you
Deep enough and strong enough
Believes on you hard enough and long enough

And maybe even you can believe in you too.
I don’t know exactly where ideas from, but when I’m working well ideas just appear. I’ve heard other people say similar things-so it’s one of the ways I know there’s help and guidance out there.

I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dream. The way you drink. How you decorate your room, your home. The way you manage your daily activity. The food you make, the food you eat. How your writing look. And The way you feel.
Life is Art.
