The thing about university art classes is that you have to accept that you’re going to be told to do certain things to improve your work that you might not agree with. If everything you do is just hunky-dory, you may as well work on your own at home.

I’m struggling just a little with a woodcut that I’m doing of a window at Spannocchia. In the photo that I took, the viewer is looking out a deep window from a very dark, very old hallway into a very bright, sun-splashed space that has stones and bricks and a tool of some kind – maybe a stirrup hoe. The problem is the dark hallway.

The funny thing is that the part that bothers me doesn’t bother the instructor, and the part that bothers him doesn’t bother me.

Anyway, I thought that I was going to print that puppy tonight but it will have to wait a few days at least.
