I am about to go out to the studio. The last 10 days feels creatively slow. In terms of painting, there has been nothing. The slowness I felt is not completely real. I have made a few substantial and innovative drawings. Yet I know I slowed down, moved back a bit to look at what I have done. This happens after a great effort has succeeded. That is the way I see the painting I am returning to today, 2017 No.9. Its success resides in its current state, but it is not the best it can be. I will work on it today. I do feel the need to begin a new painting. That will have to wait a day or two. I am over my need to step back, look, and revel in my success. I am about to use the contemplation that has occurred during the last 10 days. Out I go to the studio! Welcome back, my friend, my wellspring of creativity.
