Trust Your Judgement

"Maine Family"
Yasho Kumiyoshi

I'm on Blaine Smith's email list. I've been receiving his nuggets of wisdom for years, and enjoy what he writes. In his article Trust Your Judgement, he quoted the artist Yasho Kumiyoshi, who said:

"I have often obtained in painting directly from the object that which appears to be the real results at the very first shot, but when that does happen, I purposely destroy what I have accomplished and redo it over and over again. In other words, that which comes easily I distrust. When I have condensed and simplified sufficiently, I know then that I have something more than reality."

Maybe this explains
why I repaint creations
so many times?

"Do not let what you cannot do
keep you from doing what you can do."

John Wooden
