take a line that has been etched in and then covered over and then laid down again and then covered again and so on until the final line is ready : then take another line, this line, equal in outward appearance to that first line, but it has been quickly and easily applied, say fluidly drawn so that it is instantly final : these lines, though similar in outward appearance, are different in quality fundamentally : underneath, in the layers that preceed its final existence : layers, perhaps they have been erased as well as covered over, they still live on in the final piece and the quality of that line is different than that of the second line, the line that was instantly final : but let's not say this second line is any easier to create : the layers are still there, they are as much there as in the first line : in the thousands of lines that preceeded it in other works
