Every day a little bit closer... Along for the Ride is almost there; what a great ride it is! In the midst of the process that is painting there is a time that is more discomfort than success. This is a symptom of risk-taking, not of ability. In fact, the exercise of talent is void without risk; self-discovery is impossible without risk. The edge of one's knowledge must not be static. When my knowledge becomes static I will be dead to myself.
Yesterday's drawing was exploratory. There are infinite ways to find truth; there are infinite truths!
Confusing it is that I began a new painting with simple trust in impulse and self-dependance. I leapt and I am happy I did. Here is state 1 of Weoman; definitely far from resolved. It opens a gigantic pit of possibilities. By jumping, by not landing satisfactorily, it will be necessary for me to scramble as I walk through this one. It is a good thing; it will lead me to better knowledge of my artistic priorities.
Yesterday's drawing also asks more than it answers. Fascinating day it was; one allowing open dialogue without resolutions.
