"What next? "That is the virtue of being a painter. My great fear is that if I don't paint for a week, it will be even more difficult. If I don't paint for a month, I may give it up for ever, so the constant challenge is that you must keep working. You must paint. You must draw. It's like speaking. I met a chap who was recently out of prison; he found it difficult to talk at all. So you've got to carry on doing this job. Picasso was right about it "Je ne cherche pas, je trouve" I do not seek I find. You are finding out, you are on a journey. Rather like Dante's journey."

- Arthur Giardelli, who died last Mo
nday aged 98
