A note to myself on what to remember

I recently found a  note that I wrote to myself following a book I illustrated in 1998.  It was pertinent then and still is now.

I need to glue this to the wall in front of my work area.  Especially find exclusive time.

August 1998

o   Colours under different moods and illumination
o   Colour harmonies
o   Paint anything and everything
o   Ask what is the nature of this thing
