Comforting A Friend, Lynne Feldman
"When I stare at a blank canvas I have one of several emotions. One is excitement for I am looking at a perfectly blank canvas that holds infinite possibilities and I can’t wait to begin. Another is fear because I am looking at a perfectly blank canvas that holds infinite possibilities and I have no idea of what I want to do. I have a saying on the door in my studio:
“Painting is easy. All you have to do is stare at a blank canvas until drops of blood appear on your forehead.”
