Why paint? Well, it's a great cure for loneliness. If one is working plein air then it is also a healthy activity. The skill of an artist might be summed up as learning to see and not simply presume. In our contemporary times where mechanical photographic and projectory aids are considered part of art, the innate human faculty of imagination is a vital surviving tool of the profession. It is not what we see but what we would like to see otherwise our art is no extension of life.
