This painting is getting close to its completion. I can feel new ideas forming. For me many questions can only be answered through the act of art-making. This is my training, and it works! At this juncture painting feels the better way to solve my problems than drawing.
This painting has been called "Painting-10292012". That's awkward. I had a phone conversation with a reader of my blog a couple of days ago. He refered to one of my paintings by the dated title I have recently used. I had no idea which painting he was talking about. So much for titles with start date references! If I title with a verbal clue, outside of the start date, these conversations about my work will go better. This is a problem with me, since I do not have verbal thoughts attached to my paintings. Apparently Picasso never named his paintings; his friends and agents did it for him. This makes sense to me, but since a blog takes place in real time, the verbal reference for a painting must come from me since no one but me sees the start of a painting. I will work this out. Stay tuned!
