I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.
Vincent Van Gogh
Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.

Pablo Picasso
Through a painting we can see the whole world.

Hans Hofmann

   To make a mark on a canvas is to open the door of possibility of being moved profoundly and to move others. This is what painting is all about. This is the heart and soul of Art and self expression. I apply paint and time to canvas because it is the basis to the organization of thought and self determination. When we make a mark on a canvas and look back, we see something that seemingly was not there a moment ago. And there is the miracle: by the repition of making marks, we have created ourselves a tiny bit more ; and we actually can see more, feel more, because we have become more, by that tiny bit.
