Count them, four drawings were made yesterday; AND I returned to an old painting, which was called "Woman with Flowers." This painting is forever changed, and will now be retitled, "Woman with Little Man." Yesterday's activity was an outbreak, and it felt grand!
My obsessive drawing was instigated by an insight, an insight provoked by Dick Schellens' comment on one of drawings (as reported in yesterday's post). All forms are symbolic, that's my insight! This seems trite when written, but in effect it is important. Yesterday, as I marked paper and canvas, I knew my art was a symbolic reflection of that which I know and feel. My forms, my figures, the people I created, were accepted as mere symbols, and I manufactured them with acceptance of their symbolism.
I believe drawing #4 is the best of the lot. I do not have an image of "Woman with Little Man" to show you. Check back tomorrow, as this painting is in process of a major change. Tomorrow I will post a picture of it in the state it obtains at the end of the today.
