1. I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.
  2. I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.
  3. Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
  4. Love always brings difficulties, that is true, but the good side of it is that it gives energy.
  5. As practice makes perfect, I cannot but make progress; each drawing one makes, each study one paints, is a step forward.
  6. The emotions are sometimes so strong that I work without knowing it. The strokes come like speech.
  7. If one truly loves nature one finds beauty everywhere.
  8. Close friends are truly life’s treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone.
  9. Art is to console those who are broken by life.
  10. Color in a picture is like enthusiasm in life.
  11. It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.
  12. I would rather die of passion than of boredom.

Hope you enjoy it.
