My intense experimentation with drawing is leading me optimistically, one to the next. My investigation of the means to reproduce these drawings falls way short of satisfaction (Complaint: I just can't seem to reproduce the subtlety of the pencil line with its vast range of values. Also, I can't seem to get close to good reproduction without the white paper looking gray).
I am surprised, and nurtured, by my recent drawings. Each seems better than the last. Each feels more like me. Yes, I want to return to painting, and yes I want to begin the new triptych, but also, yes, I need to finish the diptych, Untitled Diptych-04·15·2014 (which, after the recent series of drawings, feels very old and limited to me).
Yesterday's drawing plays with the male and female form, with many contrasts and distortions. I am truly enjoying my playfulness. I am getting closer to expression of my true and unique self.
