"I don't consider myself to be a painter. I think of myself as someone who has used the medium of painting in an attempt to extend — give an extra dimension to — the medium of words. It happens very often my writing with a pen is interrupted with my writing with a brush — but I think of both as writing."
American Poet, Novelist
1911 - 1972
We define ourselves with labels. "I am a painter. What are you?" "I am a poet." We are born into this world without labels and when we die, our obituaries tell the world that we were lawyers, doctors, merchants or candlestick makers.
