I have a friend Victoria Edgar who is a ceramicist. I had several pots of hers and needed to make drawings of them. I went to my studio not taking them to draw but to draw from memory. Instead the drawings that emerged were NOT HER pots at all but but some cups and glasses she had given me. I seems that the brain has a memory of its own. I have always been aware that what I paint and draw is mostly a mirrored memory.
