Very occasional quote of the day: perfection

I used to think about this quote a lot:

“I never was interested in how to make a good painting. For many years I was not interested in making a good painting— as one might say, 'Now this is really a good painting' or a 'perfect work.' I didn't want to pin it down at all. I was interested in that before, but I found out it was not my nature. I didn't work on it with the idea of perfection...”
