                         so 
                         "The artist spends quite a lot of time with
each of 
                         his works and in a way they're all his favorites
and 
                         sometimes they seem to be all his disappointments.
                         I think the artist is one of the worst people in
the 
                         world to look at his own work and choose among 
                         them as to success or failures because he has a
                         different reaction to  his own work than other 
                         people, and in most cases other people are more
successful as being critics of the artist's work than the artist himself."
