in his own words

Dietrich in Pacific Palisades.Bill Harve
Painting is a living thing—speaking a universal language…In its noblest expression it evokes within us a feeling of spiritual joy and aesthetic fulfillment.
I believe that…
Art is the highest form of human expression.

Creative expression emanates from artistic freedom.

Freedom comes from knowledge.

With knowledge, feeling is the most important element in creative activity.
I paint what I feel, rather than what I see.
In its noblest interpretation, art evokes within us a feeling of beauty and spiritual fulfillment.
I work by instinct and impulse. I see, I absorb and react and that seems to set my imagination in motion. What happens after that is unpredictable.
