Two drawings made. The first felt uncomfortable in process. As I worked I felt I was waking up and never hit the sweet spot, where making and knowing are one. Despite this being a drawing which appears well conceived, it is not. I will never show this drawing in an exhibition. It promptly went into the "hide away" pile. The thousands of drawings in this growing pile are wrapped in plastic and stored, never to be exhibited. They are a diary of my struggle, but not good art. I will post this drawing after I post the one which felt excellent in process.
The second drawing of the day was conceived in a flash and honed over an hour or two (I lost track of time). It felt right in the making. I had woken up. Waking up to the process required to make art is not instantaneous. On this day I had to struggle to find it. Here are the two drawings, shown in reverse order from their making.
