Today's title is self-encouragement. I am acknowledging my technical ability to do all that I wish. This is nerve-racking, frightening, intimidating, and, if I let it be so, unnerving. I will not let it unnerve me. Courage is important. When a door opens there is a mystery on the other side. A choice must be made. Rest where one is, or proceed. To be a true artist one must proceed into the darkness to see the light. Yesterday I looked at a lot of Picasso's work. Through his work you can see him proceed into the darkness; you can see Picasso finding, always finding. OK. It is my time to do the same.
A Note about Reproduction: I am disturbed by the inaccuracy of the reproductions of the drawings shown today, particularly the one above this note. The subtlety of art is badly missed in electronic and digitized reproduction. Photography is not any better. I encourage you to see real art.
