He’s telling me about this other artist. How this guy will rip apart their art work, but everything he says is correct. I say I’m glad he isn’t my art teacher because that’s not how I thrive.
He says this guy intensely studied. (Was it in Europe?)
He knows the name of every bone and muscle in the body. He’s envious wishing he knew all of that information.
I said, But maybe you don’t need to know all that for your art work. Maybe the knowledge you have is enough, for your art work. You have your own point of view and aesthetic that‘s different than his.
He says You’re right I do.
