I sand the surface of my sculptures until the eye detects no aberration in the surface. I erase and redraw the curves of a Tangle over and over until there can be no other possibility. I’ll spend an hour on a leaf in a painting of weeds to make it right. I will spend untold hours “rewriting” so that certain things cannot be seen. For if they were, they would be distractions. Ever notice that you do not notice the parts of your body until they hurt?
