About Paint

Brooch; Silver and Paint, 2005 David Neale

"Paint records the most delicate gesture and the most tense. Paint is a cast made of the painter's movements, a portrait of the painter's body and thoughts.
To a non-painter, paint is uninteresting and faintly unpleasant. To a painter, it is the life's blood: a substance so utterly entrancing, infuriating, and ravishingly beautiful that it makes it worthwhile to go back into the studio every morning, year after year, for an entire lifetime."
