Iceberglandia 3: Uncle Chutzpah
Editor's Note: Artist Carol Pulitzer has been documenting the artistic progress by writing about her painting Iceberglandia. Read the first installment here, the second here. Today she wraps up the series.
Here is the final take of Iceberglandia. The lady got bigger ... because she’s in front and because she was so small before that she could stake no claim.
I interviewed Evert Witte last week, a painter who’s been doing this for an awfully long time, and he says that he regularly paints over what he painted the day before. I should have done that weeks ago.
I’m clueless, and not freely clueless like I was in kindergarten. Knowingly, willingly clueless. It’s been a swell fiasco.
Painting is very hard but picking up the garbage in New Orleans in August is much harder. So I ain’t complaining, I’m just crying Uncle Chutzpah.
