I wish I knew, and I wish I was comfortable with knowing. I am not ready to return to painting. I am working away at self-discovery through drawing (not unusual for me). I am uncomfortable with the work I am making. It does not speak fully of who I am, or how I perceive, nor what I know. I need to break through my current predilections and find a way to speak my language. My language is as much abstract as concrete. It seems I have held on to the concrete this past year. I am not disappointed in myself, as I needed the re-education. Perhaps I needed to achieve boredom. The work I have done this last year now appears mundane. Is this a good thing, or am I simply confused? The answer does not matter. It is the new work that matters. And the new work will matter only if it yells with expression of my knowing.
