A portrait, to be a work of art, neither must nor may resemble the sitter... one must paint its atmosphere.

Art is viable when it finds elements in the surrounding environment. Our ancestors drew their subject matter from the religious attitudes which weighed on their souls. We must now learn to draw inspiration from the tangible miracles around us.

There is neither painting, nor sculpture, nor music, nor poetry. The only truth is creation.
