What do you know

The other day a student asked me if, when painting, you should know what you are going to do before you start a painting.

No, I said, no. You don’t know what will happen when you start a painting. No. No. No. No. No. No. And you don’t know when you finish how it happened.

That’s what makes it so exciting.
