Even when painting for the sake of painting there is added value

Sometimes there's no message.
No concept.
And if you're telling me that's a concept too
then you're lazy.
But there is an indubital satisfaction in both painting
and looking at empty works.
Their vacuity allows  to freely associate.
You use the shapes to interpret yourself,
rather than entering an unfamiliar situation.

That's more of YOU in the painting.
