Your post really made me laugh. I always had the exact opposite
problem. All that know me are aware of how 'short' I am. I also went
to a parochial school, grades 1-6. When the nuns said to remember your
number in line, I never had to worry about it because I was 'always'
number '1'. At parochial school then, art was coloring 15 minutes on
Friday afternoons. I drove my parents crazy with wanting art lessons,
getting involved with art contests, etc., so finally I went to public
school where they had an established art program.
Everything was always bigger than me, and I still look up to almost
everyone over grade 5. So almost everyone I consider tall. Oddly
enough I tend to like working very large with my own art, the more
architectural the more excited and challenged I am. I've thought about
this strange dichotomy often, but not from your line-up 'perspective'.
Thanks again for the laugh...I haven't thought about being number 1 in a
In Art & Life,
