I should paint my own places best.

Painting is but another word for feeling.

The sound of water escaping from mill-dams, etc., willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts, and brickwork ... those scenes made me a painter and I am grateful.

There is nothing ugly; I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may, - light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful.
