The Process of Creation

"The real voyage of discovery Consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." - Proust.
I paint from observation. Observing the reality that is in front of me, is observing life itself - Always moving, breathing, changing. Creating a painting is a fascinating journey, with an enlightening moment when you reach its destiny.
"No art was ever less spontaneous than mine. What I do is the result of reflection and the study of the great masters. Of inspiration, Spontaneity  and temperament I know nothing" - Degas
