I am constantly amazed at the creative process. As the painting Untitled Diptych-04·15·2014 proceeds toward closure I feel this amazement very strongly. At this point in the process, each day's work moves Untitled Diptych-04·15·2014 toward fulfillment of its own authenticity. Right now this is easy to see. Most days of art-making don't allow satisfaction. Most days are made mostly of questions, not answers. But right now Untitled Diptych-04·15·2014 is clearly calling for resolution through true answers. And, most amazingly, these answers are happening.
Yesterday's drawing is a study for the reclining nude in Untitled Diptych-04·15·2014. This drawing was very helpful, even though the woman in the drawing looks quite different than the woman in the painting. Before I painted, this drawing allowed me to practice the softness of approach called for by the woman in the painting.
