There are things I cannot control about myself. New to painting "2016 No.4" are the supports that appear to physically balance the central form. I could not stop myself! These supports insure an object, such as this one depicted in this painting, would not tip (if it actually existed in our gravitational based reality). Is this really necessary? After all, this painting represents its own internality and not that of the real world?
Yesterday's drawing feels like a shift in direction. It has a cleaner impact on the viewer than most of my recent work. It is sparse, more direct in the relationships of its forms. I am never satisfied with any direction I take. I am a "yes, but..." person. Testing alternatives will never end with me. I will never be able to say, with absolute authority, "I will not do that again!"
