Unbelievable as it seems, in the middle of autumn, today will be hot and sunny on the Maine beaches. I predict I will be on the beach instead of in the studio. But nothing is certain, except that which has already occurred. And that which has happened is often remembered, transformed, and understood in ways quite different from one person to another. This is a reason to paint, and a reason to keep a daily blog. Like a diary I am documenting the facts of the day. As much as possible this is a visual diary, and the limitations of verbal description are replaced with the limitations of visual description. Obviously I am writing NOW, so this is only partially true. But, I digress...
Yesterday I revisited the painting "Flood #1." It was a good revisit. My understanding of the brushstroke as creator of nature, inspired by knowledge of nature, was fortified. The two drawings also gave me great satisfaction, particularly #2. Measured by my sense that I am making art which represents all I know and feel, it was a very good day in the studio.
