Nothing…?

“It’s a lot harder to paint nothing than to paint something.”
-Graham Gillmore

Painting nothing and making it something. Over the weekend I heard once again how easy it is to make abstract work. Is it? Am I fooling myself? I find the challenge of painting “nothing” far more interesting than painting “something”. I do not find it easy in any sense of the word. I choose to take the road of creating something from many different elements, many different “nothings” and making them into a unique and interesting work that stands on it’s own as “something”.

Freedom

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.”  

-Albert Einstein
