So maybe we start with a 5x7 canvas. I'll create something that lives on the 5x7. Can I fit it all in? I need more space. I have so much I want to say. I have feelings. Perhaps the 16x20 is better. A bigger universe for my narrative. The beginning, the middle, the end. No way, 16x20 is not happening. I need more than inches. It's all about feet now. 6x8. Yes. I can capture the forest, the animals and all the love on a 6 by 8 foot canvas. Done. But I don't have room for the ocean. Hmmm. Let's be honest, I'm a water spirit. Always have been. Perhaps my landlord will let me put a mural on the side of her building. It's massive. I'll ask. A good 30x50 feet should get the job done. Just enough room for the dolphins and the redwoods and the lavender. But what about the people in Africa? I need a bigger building. How do I illustrate an ancient face? Space, that's how. I need more of it. A gigantic room for everybody dancing together. One love. I need more than feet. I need centuries to capture all the minutia. The depth of feeling is intense. I need a million songs, endless kisses and the ethereal flow of forever. Art is everything and everywhere. Oh so glorious. But I'm getting rather sleepy thinking about it all.
I think I'll just watch TV.
