I awoke very, very early this morning—disquieting it was. There was vague stomach queasiness as well. This is all about exuberance over my recent gains in risk and quality. Yes, I have only been drawing, so the risk taking has been restricted to a limited category of art-making. But the work has been brilliant, one after the other. This challenges me to take the next important step. I ask, am I able to bring the approach I am now exercising in my drawings to painting? I am enjoying open and direct channeling of my intuition to the physical results in my art. Thus, my ebullience! Fear and ebullience are mates. Knowing ebullience is transitory brings fear. My ebullience is based upon insights, which are permanent, but must be developed in order to remain viable. And, painting's complexity has always scarred me.
