"In painting or anything, you cannot have hate. If you have hate, you destroy the picture and yourself. You can have hunger, you can have thirst, you can have great feeling for texture, you can be sensitive to touch, you can be sensitive to color, but for the head you've got to be sensitive to love. Otherwise it will not work...Now, that love won't change the shape, but it will add something...this radiates out from the's in the air between myself and the object I'm looking at."
- Ivan Albright, painter

  2. the above comment appears to be posted in Hebrew and roughly translates:

    Well thank you more great topic


  3. Your face drawings are marvelous. I especially like the first one for its unique use of scraps along with the face. I think that is such a wonderful and inventive technique.

    I also love the "self portrait with glasses." I feel like I know you now and could pick you out if you passed me on the street.
