I returned to Lyme when I said I would, but did not return to the studio until yesterday. Being away for a couple of weeks does not make for an easy return. I feel uneasy about a lot of things, but definitely about my art. As is my custom, I visited art museums during my journey. I saw art works which deeply affected me. As I looked I got hit with the truth. There is much to change in my manner of approach. When seeing works of great truth I realize I am not making the art I need to make in order to express my personal knowledge of existence. I have much work to do. The challenge is apparent.
Then gone again... I will be away from the studio for four days next week. I am tired of being away from the studio. I do not need a vacation now, but one had been planned on Vermont's Lake Willoughby. Thankfully those four days away will be my last days out of the studio until November, when I am slated to visit Chicago.
