Was drawing in my hand? I don’t know. The story of painting in which making in pleasure increasingly rises, is slipping out of my hands. It comes me like that, uncertainty of life includes painting as well. Still, if a thought insists on to be painted, this is what is in our hands. I guess, on the surface of whole world and at the outside of the image, deepness can be obtained. Some excitements and hopes that cannot be known completely, may transform to something expressed by colors.

    I somewhat relax when I think myself as an amateur who wrapped in picture in order not to become insane. And my rest is disturbed when I say that there are things that I should do. This also means standing to goodness as opposed to bad masses of broad public mass whose rest seems to be disturbed forever. 
    The dreams in my opinion are good-beautiful-loved… I always think that what I did have more than and less than me. All of what I did transform the extent and embrace the extent which is tried to be reached as well. Yes this is the embracing a piece of air. But I believe that the folk songs playing in this air can be heard. I guess musical picture design of Van Gogh is related with this. If I still feel myself as a foreigner in this design, this is the backwards where I withdraw in order to rebirth. In this way, I can touch the body of much more utopian picture. I don’t know what I am doing exactly and even naming it comes me as gutlessness. 
    This is completely a dedication and a research. Most of the time, nothing can be found. The only flavor is all this experiment, inspiration and creation. My rotting body and continuously becoming old ideas of art stay back. This understanding is mature at the extent of its being pattern. Still, the person who does not have to be tolerant toward this cannot expect tolerance himself.
