The miracle of showing-up is the miracle of mastery waiting to happen. Mastery does not mean the artist knows all he needs to know. Mastery means the artist has the ability to recognize the value of the stuff in front of him; he knows how to move upon it, create better out of the predisposed image. This means recognizing when something is incomplete (it can be better) and knowing when it is complete (the best solution given current understanding). Mastery means the artist can do his best on any given day. This brings me back to "showing up." It is a delight to enter the studio with this ability, knowing problems can be solved, things will get better and better. This is a plea for health and well being. That said, yesterday's improvement in the painting Adjective, and yesterday's drawing, are great steps in the right direction. I know it.
