He is looking at a pair of shoes. He is thinking about his painting. He has reviewed it in his mind again and again. What angle to choose for the painting? A little more this side or the other side? Larger or smaller? Ahead or behind? Remove the background or not? Shed the light from which side? A gentle or an oblique angle? Daylight or lights? Strong or weak? What kind of color harmony? Classicist or Modernist coloring? Plain or busy background? Finally, after one or several sessions, the labor is finished and a smile of satisfaction blossoms! But the shoes, right there, all the time, in front of the painter, were looking directly at him. A look that encompasses the other now.
