So, so close to completeness is the painting 2017 No.11. The large spherical form bothers me... not quite correct. Otherwise, I'm good! This painting has a lot of play in it. I am very comfortable with playfulness, so much so that I crave it. This painting's depiction of play means I am turning a major corner in life and art, from serious, pedantic investigation to an explosion of playfulness. The dictionary defines playfulness as this: "the quality of being light-hearted or full of fun." Dictionary examples of usage include, "images of childlike innocence and playfulness" and "his work displays a playfulness and sense of humor." This reminds me of Pablo Picasso's famous quote, "It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child."
