Yesterday was a big day on Wall Street, as everything purchasable was bought. Yesterday was a big day in my studio, as new directions were taken. The UP prices on Wall Street will not last, but my ADVANCES in art-making will. Let me show you the three plus one drawings (one revision) made yesterday.
AND, there was progress on the painting, "The Window," as well.
The drawings showcase a new direction. I am beginning to explore wider themes, ones which will include a more comprehensive world. The change in the second drawing's revision reveals my finding the two people in a museum. The need to place figures in a larger context is occurring. Saul Steinberg's domain was bigger-than-life and has always fascinated me (at the end of today's post I'll show an example of Steinberg's work).
The painting "Window" now includes a woman (from now on I will simply reduce this painting's title to "Window," as the simpler title better articulates the light being found within the painting and the emotional lives of these people). The change from a man to a woman makes sense to me, although major changes will continue to occur before this painting finds its final disposition.
