In yesterday's post I mentioned that I had awoken very early on Monday 08/15/2011 with an idea for a new painting. At 3 a.m. I made a quick sketch. I show it here:
I do not envision the new painting to have the composition shown in this sketch. It will be a narrower, steeper composition. Also, the idea I see in my head is looser than the tightness illustrated in this sketch. My verbal depiction of my vision does not do it justice. The reality of the actual painting will clarify it to you and to me.
Yesterday was a tired day, where my exhaustion made me feel incompetent, especially in the the second drawing, which I struggled to complete. In the first drawing I like the insect, or weird bird. It is a prelude to the flying animal which will appear in my new painting. I think it is an insect because of its six legs.
