Why watch sausage being made?

A mentor, wise in art, once said that a work-in-progress is not the same thing as a finished work of art, and that there is a special beauty in being able to see the architecture beneath art, music, sculpture, literature. And when I saw an unfinished painting of Rembrandt, which showed a nearly perfect oil painting, except in the upper left-hand corner, I believe it was, where you saw pencil markings.

These are the pencil markings, which will lead to finished art, some better than others. Sad to report it will not be Mr. Rembrandt, but only me. But I would like to share the process, because life for us is not forever.
