One day I am high on the beginnings of the new, the next day I realize it is just a new battle that has begun. Do I like it? Yes, I do. Problem solving makes reason to be.
There is a grandiosity in this new painting, 2017 No.6. Vigorously organized, the viewer spills over the top of a form to meet the painting's ground, then gets pushed to accept the vertical nature of the composition. Its overall verticality gets competition from the lateral points of the central form.
Yesterday's drawings are vigorous too. Contrast of scale is important, though they lack my recent interest in pattern. The painting plays a flat pattern against the large three-dimensional forms.
