HOW TO PAINT THE SOUL OF THE SEA

Aili Vint: Have you tried to put the baby to bed, when he does not want to sleep? –- In order to get the Quiet Sea to lie down on the

canvas, you have to wrestle it for a long time. But one fine day I feel that now is the right time and then painting succeeds again with

surprising ease – as if someone else was working inside me and making incredible things happen, as if the Sea itself was painting my

Sea. — I am the Sea! — The Sea is painting me.
