There are so many times when I am working on a drawing that I know just isn’t going to work. I am putting a lot into it but it isn’t giving me a lot back. The image frustrates me. Other times I have that feeling until something clicks and the image begins to improve. The hard part is understanding whether it is my own impatience to see a finished product or a case of an image grander than my hands can create. That tenuous link between the hands and brain can seem like a vast gulf at times. This reality is what separates artists from non-artists. We understand this gulf, yet we continually strive to cross it.
