"In my yellow room, sunflowers with purple eyes stand out against a yellow background… And the yellow sun, coming through the yellow curtains of my room, floods all this flowering with gold, and in the morning, when I wake up in my bed, I have the impression that it all smells very good.”
-Vincent van Gogh

"You know Picasso drew fast, he could draw a dove in 16 seconds" "But to do it in 16 seconds it took 6 decades of practice, technical skill is not enough, it’s never enough. He had to master the masters, before he was able to abandon what he learned and become Picasso."
