The painting "Window" is driving me nuts! OR, is it driving me sane? In ether case, it must change again today. Its the woman who is plaguing my existence. Sound familiar? The painting is demanding a less exaggerated female. The overall spatial composition did improve, but the woman slinks across the foreground like an earthworm. I went into the studio this morning and took a look. I continue to like the woman from her waist down. So today, first thing, I will scrape out her upper half. I will attempt, one more time, to paint her with great attention to the entire composition and overall expressiveness of the canvas.
I continue to draw very well. One of my teachers, Morton Sachs, said, "a great drawing appears to glow with its own light." My recent drawings are glowing, one after the other. It is pleasure seeing them on the wall of my studio. As I have mentioned many times, photographic reproduction does not do art work justice. Looking at an image of a drawing is like looking at a diamond in a photograph. The photo has none of the physical reality of light as witnessed in the actual article. The sparkle and glow is left behind.
