‘Painting is stronger than I am. It makes me do whatever it wants.’
(read more at the bottom of the page)
‘A successful painting does not make a point or send a message. A good painting has an ineffable, mysterious quality. It eschews technique, and is a refinement of the commonplace.’
‘I see countless landscapes, photograph barely 1 in a 100,000, and paint barely 1 in 100 of those that I photograph. I am seeking something quite specific.’
As one among a number of California landscape artists (esp. one now offering his landscape paintings for sale) I love these quotes, because they come close—from artists’ perspectives—to answering a variety of unanswerable questions:
I wonder about these things, because if I’m going to offer original oil paintings for sale—paintings of California to be precise—I ought to have some deeper understanding about why it makes sense.
And you’ll not only find California landscape paintings in my oeuvre, I’ve also made abstract landscape oil painting.
So, take a moment to re-read and consider the above quotes. Yes, mystery will always remain. Some non-physical, universal energy impels artists like me to paint. And it makes sense to offer my landscape oil paintings for sale, because the value of oil paintings—though still not explicitly understood—is beyond all doubt.
I’ve found Picasso’s wisdom undeniable: painting is stronger than I am. It does make me do whatever it wants.
