favorite quote from Frank Auerbach

"Yes, no I think that is true. You know, none of these things are unique to me. I think that to paint a picture with a foreseen conclusion is... I don't... I don't know. I don't think very many painters do this. I think there's always an element and sometimes a totality of discovery involved in the process - otherwise it would be so boring, wouldn't it? It would be handicraft."
