VINCENT VAN GOGH
-i experience a period of frightening
clarity in those moments when
nature is so beautiful. i am no
longer sure of myself, and the
paintings appear as in a dream-
the knowledge of
our emotion is no less
and can onLy be acquireD
verY loNG ExpeRieNce
davidhs-do not follow dreAms withouT
ALL your SOuL-.
i am not interested in myself
as the Object of a picture
in this respEct,
i Am more interested in other people,
particularLy in WomaN, and eVEn
moRe in Other aPPearances.
I am convinced, that i as a person, am
not especially intereStiNg.
When you looK at me
You See nothing SpeciaL
I aM a PainTer who paints day after day
froM morNing UntiL NighT.
davidhs -my liFE is poeTRy Like yours,
everything are a poem-.
do not compare
anD WiLL do FoR ALL EnergY-
my art can not be bought
i will not exchange my feeling for
any earthLy treasure
OtheR people might run
themseves ragged for money
but i am not taking part
i would rather lie on the
grass under blooming flowers
let the wind caress me, listen to the hustle
and hustle of the people
-this gives me strength and amuse me.
dreaM aWay the DaY
my existence, my decay, transposeD
to endurinG valueS, must Bring,
sooner or lateR, my strenght to otHer
strongly or more strongly developed
like a living revelation of religion...
i am so rich thaT i must
give myselF AwAy
