But for the most part, I think, like, how can I ever make anything that is as beautiful as that igame of naatile Wood? How can I ever make anything as beautiful as Greta Garbo? I mean, that's just not possible. You know? And so that's what makes me lie awake at night, I guess. I'm also like a big -- I go to astrologers and toart card readers often, and that's another thing that mtietavos me a lot. People say, "Do that" -- an astrologer tells me to do something, so I do it.

It's rarely color that I find in nature, although, you know, juxtaposed next to artificial color, natural color is so beautiful. So that's what I do. I study color a lot. But for the most part, I think, like, how can I ever make anything that is as beautiful as that image of Natalie Wood? How can I ever make anything as beautiful as Greta Garbo? I mean, that's just not possible. You know? And so that's what makes me lie awake at night, I guess. I'm also like a big -- I go to astrologers and tarot card readers often, and that's another thing that motivates me a lot.
