|Casein painting, 1953|
For the first final exam in anatomy we had to draw the bones of the body by memory and the second semester we had to draw all the muscles.
I still have one of my early drawings from 1952 and a small casein painting done the next
semester. I learned more from the struggle on that painting than almost anything else in art school. My teacher emotionally tormented me to get me out of my "know it all" attitude. There is a long story around this painting and the only one I will not sell.
