Sylvester's Oleander Again (9x4 inches)
Another one with the big brush. Of course when you think about it, it is amusing to think a tool is going to change the way you see things. It might gum you up a bit at first, but then your habitual way of doing things, which is fiercely entrenched, overcomes all. So as usual, the battle is within. I remember seeing Velasquez at the Prado, all those huge paintings of the Spanish royalty. If you stood within a foot of the canvases, you could not see one line or edge, not one. If you stood back further, it made itself into the forms. Oy vey!
