It is important to express oneself...provided the feelings are real and are taken from you own experience.

In love, there's sentiment and passion; I know only sentiment through myself, passion through others. I hear certain voices I know say: sentiment is love of the intellect; I can answer: passion is the love of the body.

I wear myself out trying to render the orange trees so that they're not stiff but like those I saw by Botticelli in Florence. It's a dream that won't come true.

Real painters understand with a brush in their hand.
