All in a day, your whole world can change.
If you're struggling to pay rent, don't be buying paintings. Make sure you've always got food in the cupboard and try to pay your bills. Hey, if you've got wall space and you're not struggling, then buy a painting, not only because they're fabulous but because it could get you up in the morning. Just make sure you love it, really love it, because this could be in your family for centuries.
I love paintings because they say something about you, about what you like, about what you don't like, about the associations and feelings which you associate with the image, and just sometimes, occasionally, they say something about the colour of your wallpaper. But always it's all about you.
