Why Not Risk Everything ?

Picasso; Need We Say More ?
Thank you, Keith Flynn.

"Painting is an instrument of war.
I want to create mountains of paintings,

"Painting is praying, and while the street preachers
rub their Bibles and pull their hair,
denouncing all sinners, the places we paint
become churches. Why not risk everything?"
