On Painting - Part Seven

From an interview with Ken Kewley on Painting Perceptions website

Keep things in flux. You must be willing to get rid of anything.

Get back to the joy of painting and trust that all you need to know is within you.

The beauty of things comes partly from never having become accustom to that thing, that relationship. It is what keeps things always fresh, always surprising, it is that the mind has never been able to completely name the thing.

Do not make a picture of a landscape, create a landscape.

Painting is very simple. Anyone can fill an area with paint. But to relate everything in a complex journey without resulting in chaos takes a lifetime to master.
