I did not expect this to happen. I began yesterday's drawing with the intension to resist complexity. Then this happened! There must be several million pencil lines in that drawing. It took all of my studio time to complete — hours! I feel I have far to go in order to produce simplicity and elegance. I question, "Simple and elegant?" Joan Miró achieved it; Wassily Kandinsky did not, Both of these artist's works have great merit. I will continue my research. I will work this out. With great effort satisfaction will come. Unfortunately, the preparation for my upcoming exhibits is taking time away from my research. I feel the paint of practicality. I must make art, but I must also exhibit it.
