The woman in the library asked if I was an artist. I thought she said something else so I started rambling on about me being an American born in New York City but living here most of my life..... She cut in and looked at me like I was crackers-I didn't ask if you were an American, she said, but an artist. She was studying medicine to become a doctor. I was embarrassed. #penandink#artwork#poetry#artist#american#newyorkcity#medicine#doctor#communication
Yesterday I lied. I said I would leave this alone and start again from first principles, so I could draw it better from the start. Then I changed my mind. I thought I might learn something by playing with it. I think it is working. Still only got two layers on the breakers, so it's quite flat at the moment, but there is more to do. Learning all the time. Soon the picture will communicate to me how it wants to be.
