Oh, I know you will find those, in the bloom of youthful naivetee, who will claim that painting is the “easy” part of painting and that the work done before and after is really the hard part, but you can simply laugh to yourself at such innocence, for you know that at the end of a long day, even those callow youths will be rubbing sore muscles, strained necks and desperately gasping for fresh air at the window.

Oh foolish, foolish youth!
