canvas“You don’t know how paralyzing it is, that stare from a blank canvas that says to the painter you can’t do anything. The canvas has an idiotic stare, and mesmerizes some painters so that they turn into idiots themselves.” This was what Van Gogh wrote in his letter 464, 3r:7.

He continued in 464, 3v:8 with: “Many painters are afraid of the blank canvas, but the blank canvas is afraid of the truly passionate painter who dares — and who has once broken the spell of ‘you can’t’.”

Van Gogh probably was very right. He knew perfectly how to emphasize authentic entrepeneuralship sleeping inside each of us. A lot of people however are frightened to create something new, something radically better from a complete bank “greenfield” situation.  And this is a pity because for certain things we really need radical improvements. Perhaps only those who are not afraid to radically recreate towards a radical better humanity-centric situation need to be encouraged in just doing that.

Good luck with selecting and painting your “canvas”.canvas-1
