As sophisticated as these drawings are... I ask, "Are these drawings too complex?" I fear they are too full of activity to be enjoyed simply and quickly. Do viewers enjoy wandering through drawings as abstract as mine? Perhaps a viewer would take their time to observe fully a drawing with many representational cues. I am not sure, so I worry.
The bottom drawing on this page is in its second state. You can compare it to this blog's previous post to see the changes I have made. It is better. The movements within it are more obvious. I am trying to make my ideas more obvious to the viewer. I am hoping the viewer is engaged more easily, more directly, I working to draw the viewer in through instant involvement.
It ain't easy being me. If you believe internal revolutionary battles are easy, then you have never done the work. Sophistication based upon effort and time does not lead to easy assurance. It surely leads to a plethora of ideas. Every day I try something new, and every day I wonder if I am wasting my time. It is tiresome to be in search of solidity when no such thing exists.
Despite my feelings of assured failure, I am very exited about the painting I now call Cave (2018 No.1). It is in blossom, albeit early in its cycle. Also surprisingly excellent is yesterday's drawing. I worried my way through it in the manner addressed in today's first paragraph.
