I love the story told about Leonardo da Vinci. It is possibly legend, but it illustrates a valid point.
Leonardo took a friend for a private viewing of his marvelous work, “The Last Supper.” The friend pondered the masterpiece, and upon reflection said, “The most striking thing in the picture is the cup.”
Da Vinci immediately took a brush and eliminated the cup from the painting. “Nothing in my painting shall attract more attention than the face of my Master!”
