Brush Strokes

I realize how much in awe I am of artists like Monet, Van Gogh and Seurat.  Imagine painting a subject--and you are close enough to your canvas to use small brush strokes, and yet your subject comes alive with light and dark and shape and line, and we see it as a complete work.

That's what it's like sometimes to write a long work--or even a short one. You concentrate on the small brush strokes that you hope lead to the big story, the big picture.

That's all I'll say about that.
