My great effort to rid myself of my own iconic images is in full battle mode. You can see it here. This may not be pretty (or not), but it is definitely a conflict in full engagement. This will get fixed! I will find a way to pare the basis of me into a distillation that is all my known knowledge. I will become clarified and pure. The struggle will waver. It will not produce all things good. It is a path taken in a correct direction; a direction that is more felt than known. This is the artist feeling his way across a dark room, bumping into deceptive objects, but knowing there is a door to light somewhere across the room.
Yesterday's drawing was one step forward (completing the drawing began on 9/23/2020) and one step sideways (the drawing began yesterday). Today I will complete the latter drawing. I believe I will be constantly drawing until I feel ready to commit to a new painting. There is knowledge and understanding to gain before the next big trial by paint.
