I wish that I had the insight and strength to use the mix of ultramarine blue and cadmium red in the portraits I paint.  I don’t know how to portray light properly, thus revealing my limited use of colors — I tend to mix this generic, Crayola crayon version of the color of  “flesh” (this silly peachy pink) instead of the range of colors that best portrays what I see: all of these reds and greens and blues that make up the face.  This bothers me very much.  When will I finally begin to paint what is actually in front of me?  Better yet, when will I finally learn how to express my experiences in such a way that is representative — through writing, painting, speaking, what have you — with the slightest tinge of satisfaction?

Work harder.  (…young one.  ZOMG, if any one understands this reference, please comment.  I will love you forEVAR.)
