Great When Greatly Pursued
Constant work leads to success. Oliver Wendall Holmes said, "Every calling is great when greatly pursued." I agree. I am in the middle of a great pursuit. I predict, if my time and my energy continue, my art will fulfill itself greatly. Yesterday was one more day in my relentless pursuit. I am inspired by insight; I do not see this ending any time soon. I do worry; time and energy must be preserved; they must be nurtured by good eating, robust exercise, and fostering the luck of good health. I am pursuing all of that. I need years to get this greatly done! Godspeed!
This activity is a little like making sausage: take some meat, add a little spice, some filler, and gadzooks, what do you got? I am thinking about the final state of the painting "2017 No.3", posted yesterday. Gadzooks! It's a finished product! I have begun anew. Here comes the painting "2017 No.4"! It appears that I am seeking daunting solidity, i.e., an image that forces the viewer to believe its presence is substantial, that one must pay attention. You can also see this pursuit in yesterday's drawings.
