Blessed is he who slips out of those awful shoes that he laced to one another.

Thanks, I'll take both of them.

The practical studio question is: Can anyone remain this familiar with the media while doing something similar on a monumental scale?

It is not that big is better, but it is different. The disciplined ease I see here would be an unexpected trip if writ large. Too often the monumental picture includes the monumental effort, and that gets in the way. Making it familiar instead gives me ideas.

Monumental scale would be a fine thing. I'd settle for three or four feet on a side on a support that isn't paper.

The thing about the larger scale is that unless you're prepared to throw away panels or canvases like they were smaller pieces of paper, you're going to need a means of correction, and at that point you're dealing with an entirely different problem. If your ideas pan out be sure to let me know.
