The Fall I am referring to is not as simple as Autumn, which you probably already know. Yes, Autumn is almost here; in general I have found Autumn a time of energy and insight. Yesterday's drawings are me coming back from the pleasant distractions of ocean walks and seafood meals. It take a few days to find my footing, which included the first exciting burst seen in my last post. Today's drawings show risk-taking and searching. These drawings are not as high a quality as the drawing shown in the previous post, but they are more experimental and ask important questions. I am striving to create emotional space as well as emotive figures. So yesterday I fell down into unknown visual space hoping to stand up stronger with greater insight and intuition. It is the adage I am fond of repeating: one step back, two steps forward, one back, et cetera... It adds up to more knowledge and greater authenticity.
