"So, I managed to complete The Four Seasons, of course in five paintings; without ladders, falling snow in winter, leaves in spring and autumn rain (as Jasper Johns did). According to the Celts, the year started in November, at the beginning of winter, and was divided into geimhredh - the winter season, and samradh - the summer season. But the holidays related to the preparation for winter, awaiting the spring and all the spring works, then the summer works and harvest time, divided the year into five parts. Besides, aren’t the four seasons in five paintings obvious from the point of view of painting? "
