“I fell in love with sketching at about the age of ten.  The importance and joy in drawing, recording impressions, is invaluable as it builds and enlarges the artist’s power of observation and thinking.  There is a difference between looking and SEEING.  The lure of today’s high-tech cameras and Photoshop is tempting and seductive, but it discourages drawing from life.  Do not be fooled, as there is NO substitute for training the eye, whose vision grows sharper and, where it is used, stimulates the imagination.  We are all of us students, chewing on a bone.”
