Promises never kept, albeit on the run. Catch-22 is basically complete. Yesterday, I promised myself I would begin a new painting. That is the promise unkept. Still I am alive and aware and running. More to come (as long as I breathe air).
Sometimes getting to Now takes a long time. The painting 2017 No.14 has been my constant companion for nearly two months. Now, at last, I understand her. She is beginning to light up because I recognize her best qualities. She is demandingly Here. After working, re-working, revision after revision, she seems to be saying, "Yes, this is me!" I am celebrating, as is she.
The better qualities of 2017 No.14 are influencing my drawing.
