Specificity does not necessarily result in accuracy. I made a drawing from a very blurry photo. It was a very detailed drawing trying to avoid copying the photo. Ironically in an effort to avoid making a photo-like drawing I drew the details from memory and ended up with a more photo-like drawing than the photo! A friend remedied this: he shook the drawing while I photographed it. This friendly collaboration was the perfect culmination of our years of experience - Resulting in a photo-realistic drawing from a fuzzy photo then re-photographed to appear like an exact drawing of an inexact photo and hence a perfect copy. We managed to elaborately reproduce exactly what I was trying to avoid and we did so perfectly, or should it be accurately.

I went in search of a studio space and I was handed the keys to the door of enlightenment....
|The door to enlightenment|
|The view from enlightenment|
That was listed in Craig's List under "Temporary Sublet" and it has a view.

|Varvara Stepanova, Figure, 1921, oil on canvas|
It was time to look at all the paintings that were not drawing a crowd. It was time to discover all the lonely paintings. de Kooning had a Cedar Tavern cool crew packed in and around each brush stroke. There was no room for the paintings to greet each other o the wall let a lone a visitor see them.
But one floor away...Stepanova was dancing!
