'You Need To Find Your Own Line.'

I was happily reading along with dealer Kenny Schachter's gossipy recap of the Art Basel fair, when he dropped this poignant little bomb:

At a lunch before things kicked off, I was going in and out of consciousness during a speech by sculptor David Smith's daughter when she dropped the most poignant bomb: that her father refused to teach drawing, disallowed coloring books (or anything within an outline) and would not permit the use of crayons. She related that he said, "You need to find your own line." I thought that just about encompassed the key to the meaning of life.
