All my life I have worked to be able to earn my living, but I thought that one could do good painting without attracting attention to one's private life. Certainly, an artist wishes to raise himself intellectually as much as possible, but the man must remain obscure. The pleasure must be found in the work.

Cezanne is one of my favorite painters. I love that he was always willing to fight with the painting and the paint to resolve the work. You know , he often painted with just a palette knife...I wonder if he ever made time to fence!?
