I am gladly, and intently, working on two paintings simultaneously: "Flood #1" and "Holding Rock." The approach to each is similar and feels different from "Pulling Onions" or "Pond." No sooner did I establish an identity in publishing an advertising post card than my work takes a turn. It does not matter. It is all me. Each of these paintings are stepping stones to an unknown future of expressive work. This is true, as well, of the multitude of drawings. Yesterday I worked on "Flood #1," which is shown below.
I will not linger here today, as this morning I am taking a class on "Japanese Films" (and for the next six Friday mornings). I will be back tomorrow, and will write about Willem de Kooning and his retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Before you leave, please take a look at the two drawings posted today. These drawings also illustrate an occurring change. As with my painting, my approach, the manner in which I am inventing form and space, is changing as I work.
