Today I am spending my time with my family. I will not write more than a few bare bone thoughts. Two drawings were made yesterday, both in quest of expressive animation of the entire page. You can see my effort to pay attention to all the elements of art, from form to composition. Recently I have mentioned Willem de Kooning and Arshile Gorky as role models. Today I am thinking of Alberto Giacometti. Giacometti is on my short list of important influences. As example, I show a couple of Giacometti's works. I am much more captivated by the first of these two Giacometti's. This indicates that I am most interested in composition and form, more than the human figure. The human figure appears in both of Giacometti's works, but in the first the figure is subordinate to whole.
