Abstract: Painting is proverbially difficult to define and explain. The reason for this difficulty lies partly in the subject itself and partly in our attitude toward it. The production of a painting is a mysterious process; it is fulfilling a part of the Earth's furthest dream in a spiritual and unanticipated manner. The painter paints the dreams which wave before the half-shut eye, as the great singer sings our rhythmic silence. The one who has gone through the baptism of the sweat of agony and the tears of ecstasy, and is longing for an outlet of the spiritual pressure and a channel through which to relieve his overburdened mind, dips his brush into rare and rich colors and paints with the experiences of his life; then an artist is in existence. Experience as sculpturing dew softens the rock-like soul of man. Wisdom carves the mist into an image singing as an inspiration in an artist's heart.
