“Should I Paint on the Canvas?”
A large redwood burl, exquisitely shaped by Nature. The carver confronts it, chainsaw ready. “I’ll make an Indian chief out of it.”
Look at that block of stone. Feel its spirit. Then ask yourself, Should it be sculpted?
Now look at this blank white canvas. Should it be painted?
The more I can Feel the Spirit that is the canvas, the less I want to disturb it.
