1:31 PM: when the artist himself gets bored with a painting, you know it's time to shift gears. mikela came over earlier & critiqued the nose. i was just tired of trying to get her nose right. what happened i suddenly wondered, to painting? while gaze 1 is still not there, i am no longer bored! remember technicolor? and how new and shocking it was when hollywood transitioned from b&w to color? how gaudy it seemed? you don't have to go that far back. remember when the new yorker introduced color? now that seemed like a radical, even sacrilegeous move!
