I am unsure. I do not know where this new painting is going. I am uncomfortable, but I do not know a better way. How does one know if one makes sense? It takes a risk to find out. The final product will either be true or a mess of discordant ideas. My job is to find truth. I will keep on going. The name for this painting, "Balancing," is apt. It is a depiction of a man trying to balance, but it also is me balancing all I know. I am proceeding as if through a fog. Maybe that's how that cloud, on the right, was formed, as a small bit of fog I must get through. Why is the cloud being held back? Fogs are scary. Everything about this painting is surprising me.
The two drawings from yesterday are unrelated to the new painting. The first is a simple scrap of whimsy. The second is a study for the painting "Pulling Onions." I continue to analyze the manner which feet hit the ground while standing, as this corresponds to man on the right in "Pulling Onions."
