The painting Leap! is in its final days. The painting Lava begins its journey! I have to say, drawing on the scale of these paintings is wonderfully expressive. My inclinations in line and in form get satisfied. Perhaps I should make drawings on this scale. The real challenge for me is to keep the excitement of drawing continuous through the making of a painting. As Leap! developed I felt the drawing became subjugated to other concerns. I do not want this to happen. My view of all I do is simple. I self-express through marks that make form, light, and composition. Failure to continuously express is failure to come to fruition.
