One more drawing; one more day; many more thoughts on how my art should be. Never a minute relaxed; never without discontent and anxiety; always in my head there is this question, "How can it be better?" What should I try? In what image can I find truth and reality? Always there are more questions, more answers. No answer feels adequate! I must try again, make more answers. Relentless!
Ideas are never fully satisfied during discovery. They lead to knowledge. They lead to better self-expression, but not instantaneously. This is the work of making art. Here it is. One more drawing. Another idea that has consequences. Who could ask for anything more?
Yesterday felt confusing. I entered the studio thinking I had the painting "2017 No.4" under control, but no. My previous blog post was called "Plain & Simple." I wish it so, but that's not reality, at least for now. I anticipate changes today. Yesterday's drawing looks like some things residing on an extraterrestrial planet. New planets circling stars other than our sun have been in the news lately. This is no excuse.
