Foritis Muchatease

The idea of painting meant nothing, but there it was, people nurtured it on their walls with their bank accounts. Painters crazed by the feeling they would become the next big thing, even if it was in their own home town for a year or two, as the paintings faded with their insignificance or humble being. The thought of making art was romantically cruel.
