I feel jumpy and anxious. This is a good thing, though annoying. One minor example is my mislabeling the date on yesterday's drawing. The mislabel is just a sign, only a hint that I am restless and unsettled. I am not paying close attention to extraneous details, such as the date, which is merely an announcement, and has nothing to do with the quality of the work of art. However, I am paying closer attention, more than ever before, while in the process of making art. My work is changing in its process, and consequently its qualities have changed as well. The art-making process totally takes me over, and when doing it I am nowhere except within the effort to get it right. On the surface this seems the way it should always have been, and should always be. It is not so long ago that I questioned the validity of my activity while in the process of that activity. You can find this concern in earlier blog posts.
