Goya, Brooklyn, And The Paintbrush

The corner of St. Marks and Classon Avenues in Brooklyn. 

I came across this quote, reputedly from the painter Goya: "My eye never perceives features or details. I don't count the hairs of the beard of the man who passes [my way], and the buttonholes of his suit do not stop my eye.  My paintbrush should not see better than I do."  12x16 inches, oil on panel.
