It's really not a problem, Chuck.

"I found myself applying first aid to paintings and saving little precious areas that I loved, but couldn't be ruthless enough to paint out anything so that when the whole painting was full of precious areas that I couldn't afford to paint out, I was done. The problem was the painting wasn't conceived as a whole; it never came together; it was just a series of fractured elements that I happened to like."

-Chuck Close
