Yesterday was one of those days swept away by personal business and me helping others. Time in the studio was limited to two hours, but I produced two drawings. These drawings exude some of the qualities I have been working to achieve. Specifically, in my drawing I currently have three main objectives: (1) Marks touching and delineating the forms with feeling, (2) Pleasing forms, (3) Satisfying composition. I know the words "pleasing" and "satisfying" are completely subjective. When I use words like "pleasing" and "satisfying" I am telling you I have not thoroughly contemplated this aspect of my art, so I am unable to give you a better verbal description. My current primary objective in drawing is to feel my way through the forms. I am trying to draw with emotive feeling without muddying the form by heavily marking portions of the drawing. In other words I am trying to insure clarity and readability. I believe the drawings shown today accomplish this objective.
