Painting is a lie. It’s the most magic of all media, the most transcendent. It makes space where there is no space.
My favorite painter of all time is Vermeer.
Nuance and subtlety are where it’s at. It’s those little adjustments. You get something 99 percent of the way there, but it’s that last 1 percent that really makes a difference.
You don’t have to have a dramatic story. It’s all in the telling.
