This painting is going, going... I am optimistic this painting will represent me more than any painting I have done before. If anything, this is me true-working. I am throwing out every distraction, dispelling all things that do not make sense to it being right for me.
When things are not quite right, and a possible solution is discerned, haste becomes imperative.
I will say little because my need to say is increasingly in my Art. Explanations have been instructive, but time consuming. Now I am a man in a hurry because I know I want to proceed to paint, not dwell with thoughts and words on what I have done.
I am getting better. I better recognize that which says me when I see it. This is mindfulness in action. It is my mind that interests me. I bare what says me and I make better.
There is nothing more important to successful problem solving than a goal with a limited amount of time to achieve it. These two images are creative discovery leading to successful solutions. The drawing is complete. The painting is on a path. Both images illustrate my need to compress time, us it wisely and well. I fear my time is limited. I am not ill. I do accept my time to create is bound by my finite existence. I accept my mortality. Mortality is the restriction that defines my personal and Artistic limits.
I am devoted to refusing to comply with preconceptions. My goal is to find camaraderie with those who see my Art. My Art, In all aspects of non-representational Art, is extremely competent, yet it continues to cause confusion. In order to dispel confusion I must seek clarity though continual reinvention. Yesterday's drawing is extremely competent, but does it translate my knowledge and feelings to my viewers? I am unsure. I need find an answer to my question, one that brings me security.
New drawing with more insight; revisions to two paintings, now declared "complete" — that's all he wrote.
