Art process reminds a trip, the skills allow moving forward and you never know what awaits you behind next corner. It's not always comfortable, but it's always passionate and after all the passion determines your way of life. Also thoughtful process of art allows to understand and to change (if needed) your own world outlook, your own mechanics and ways of behavior. Understanding of all useful implication of an Art process is in itself a great inspiration.

When the eye strays over a palette, splashed with many colors we receive a dual result. In the first place one receives a purely physical impression, one of pleasure and contentment at the varied and beautiful colors. The eye is either warmed or else soothed and cooled. But these physical sensations can only be of short duration. They are merely superficial and leave no lasting impression, for the soul is unaffected. But although the effect of the colors is forgotten when the eye is turned away, the superficial impression of varied color may be the starting point of a whole chain of related sensations.

Generally speaking, color is a power which directly influences the soul. I can say that color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand which plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.

Every artist, as a creator, has something in him which calls for expression . Every artist, as child of his age, is impelled to express the spirit of his age or a style dictated by the period and particular country to which the artist belongs and every artist, as a servant of art, has to help to the pure artistry, which is constant in all ages and among all nationalities.

I'm learning and developing different attitude to art all my life, it gives a freedom not to be attached to some specific technique. I don't fill that there was any beginning and I'm not sure there will be any end - I'm always inside the process.
