Painting and art cannot be taught. You can save time if someone tells you to put blue and yellow together to make green, but the essence of painting is a self-disciplined activity that you have to learn by yourself.
There are no goals that I still want to reach. I don't believe in goals; goals are for a football team. An artist is just seeking what he might find.
