Abstract: Search from a painter's point of view is a pre-condition of personal creativity. If I knew all the ways of searching, I would be more than one person and that, of course, is impossible. The painter is ONE, one who moves in the direction of his choice. Search is technical. Search is spiritual. Search is fundamental. Search is inevitable in the life of a painter. Often when a form is determined and a color harmony is established, in the revelation of a painting, there is a month of July celebration in the painter's heart. In my life this celebration may last ten minutes. The statement which the painting is making is a success. I see the painting. The painting sees me.
