My present work is the visualization of empathy. I feel much; I know my feelings have not been adequately displayed in my art. The mountain is there. It looms. I am able cross the river, get to those hills of feelings, then I will climb. This is my life's work. Every drawing I have made, every painting I have make, has fallen short of my goal. Each work informs me. Each work makes me feel the pang that results from failure. With every work I make I feel more strongly; my desire is evidence; I want to get there, to reach full success, to fully disclosure my enormous feelings and emotions. Strong awareness of failure is the symptom of understanding what truth looks like. I can see the promise land, a place where my art and my feelings are one. This is the result of my constancy; I have consistently made art. I have been making art for a very long time. I have a personal history of failure, I have a personal history of success; failure and success are my driving forces; they push me toward my goal; I can see truth in my mind's eye. I have seen truth in other people's art. I know it can be done. I am struggling to get there. I need time and production, honesty and reaction.
Yesterday's drawing is a stepping stone along my way to full visual disclosure.
