Version 3 of the painting "Window" is fully painted. Every square inch has paint on canvas. It makes me very uncomfortable. This painting says nothing interesting. These is no depth of revelation. I have been here before. It is time for me to step back, contemplate, and ask the eternal questions, "What needs to be withdrawn? What needs to be revealed?" I feel physical discomfort when I look at this painting. "Window" is untrustworthy in its current state. Before further comment you need to see it.
This week's drawings have gone places more interesting than currently described in "Window." Through their spontaneity my drawings often lead the way in revelation. As I meditate on "Window" I will also consider my recent drawings. In addition I will continue to make drawings. Contemplation is active. It is necessary for me to be inactive in painting "Window" until my knowing catches up. The required alterations will be revealed. Yesterday's drawings did some of this.
