People aren't interested in blueprints; they want to sense the painter's involvement and pleasure in the subject. . . . Paint a sense of place.
When you paint things exactly as they are, you don't show people anything that they couldn't see for themselves; you're telling them what they already know.
If fact were enough, you could take a photo of the subject. Unlike the sensitive observer, however, the camera never selects or comments, never adds or subtracts.
You can write a letter with a typewriter, a pencil, or a crayon. What you have to say is the important thing.
If you're not excited about the subject, the viewer won't be either.
