There's something always instinctively visually right about nature. There's no difference, to my eye, between looking at a great painting and looking at nature. Because painting, when it's great, has the same immutable rightness, unquestioned rightness, about it.
If you think you know where you're going to be 10 years from now, that's where you're at now. You're just putting it off.
If you want to be told what to think, well, I'm not in that business.
A great painting is a great painting.
The only thing simple about the past is that it's not now.
