If you have been watching my recent art, instead of being distracted by my recent falderal, you have observed a gentler touch. Yesterday's drawings, and the newest painting ("2016 No.16"), exhibit a higher degree of contrast in value, and touch, than my previous works. Again, I must complain about reproduction. I try to reproduce my art close to reality, but I am never totally successful. Yesterday's reproduction of "Drawing No.1" is far from true. The grays of the pencil have a wide range of values in the original, not seen in today's reproduction. Therefore, I need to tell you what the original says that may not be evident here.
My gentler touch brings great benefit to my expression. It allows me to create a world on paper that is more light-filled, that has rounder, more robustly three-dimensional forms. This has been a goal of mine. Yesterday's drawings took a positive step toward achieving this goal. Insight! It happened on paper.
