Nothing is perfect, but things do get better with effort. The old idiom, "two steps forward, one backward," is apt. And so it goes. Here comes 2017 No.8, but it is surprisingly difficult for me. Difficult because it comes without the joy of fluidity, but with great effort, great thoughtfully slow effort. This is the reason the act of drawing is so important to me. Drawing comes as the wind blows. Drawing, for me, is a force of nature. I working hard to make painting a simple, fluid force in my nature as well. This is what I want. BTW: A Filbert is a type of painting brush, the kind I use exclusively.
