I am feeling better. Strength comes back through effort. I will be back in the studio today. Absence does make the heart grow more insightful. While resting during my brief sickness I looked at my paintings from the past 12 months. I realized there is a major show there, along with the better drawings from the same period. It is time for me to assemble a one-man show again. It will take me a few months to finish off the loose ends on the many paintings, which I let stand when solved but not buffed to a shining finish.
It is interesting that part of my insight is allowing myself to make quick studies. These have been missing from my oeuvre for some time. The drawing below exhibits their usefulness. It also shows me that sometimes there is more splendid, and more lucid, information in less. I love the way the feet work in this drawing. The space play isn't bad either.
