Amazing I recognize! There is something happening to me. I have said it before, but now it feels more real than ever. I am a conduit to information which is internalized, non-verbal, non-intellectual, intuitive, and true. I stand in front of canvas or paper and this information is called upon. My job is to complete the internal knowing with the media I have at my disposal. Wowie-Zowie, here it comes❗️
That said, there is an attitude forming in my work. It has a need to become real. This need pushes me to show up and make it real. I feel the results of yesterday's studio time clearly exhibits this, more clearly than ever before. Both the drawing and the painting are terrifically demanding when a viewer stands in front of the actual objects. You might say this sounds like a man on a manic high. Not true. My feeling is more the call of the wild. That which I intuit is wildly disorganized; my job is to understand it, to tame it. It is a big job. I need a lot of time to do it right. I want to stay fit and ready for the challenge. I am like an athlete who must stay healthy to compete.
