Entry 21: The Better Artist


Who is the better artist?

The one who draws precisely what she


With each stroke,

Shading carefully,

Measuring for proportions

Converting canvas into reality,

As if developing a photograph?

I think otherwise.

The artist who fills their masterpiece with


Interaction, who

Creates, not imitates

Is the Magnificent artist.

To this wisdom, I held true at age 16  

And in 26 years since I have become a master
