Perhaps the main job of art-making, also viewing art, is to center us. This can be done with calm introspection, Piet Mondrian comes to mind. Or, it can be done with rambunctious bravado, and flair, such as the work and life of Vincent Van Gogh. I am in the latter camp. I enjoy enthusiasm, and energetic interaction, in the process that is my art-making. I want the. viewers of my art to feel the same. However, centering is becoming more important, more imperative. For years I misunderstood my own needs. My intent got distorted, it became removed from the reality of working toward a controlled center. Centering is required for the human spirt to thrive. Centering is as exhibition of mindfulness and human dignity. Yesterday's drawing recognizes this. All my work going forward will recognize the human quest for center.
