A drawing I started two weeks ago, and every day since I've worked on it, crept up on it to take it unaware, corrected it, erased it - it's a large charcoal drawing on thick paper - hidden it away, displayed it, reworked it, looked at it in a mirror, redrawn it, and today I think it's over. — John Berger
