Never in a day does it happens to me. My paintings unravel, dependably protracted. Drawings occur dependably, from beginning to end, in one session. I continue to be unhappy with Weoman. Don't read me wrong, there are a lot of satisfying solutions in this painting, however it continues to seek completion. Yesterday, when I finished for the day, I looked at Weoman's current state (No.7) and said to myself, "Woe! Why did I not see that! It needs to be different?" And so it goes. I am hoping to finish Weoman soon. I am anxious. I want to get onto my many ideas waiting to be tested on canvas. If there be discipline in my life, it is this: I cannot stop working on anything, from my important personal relationships to my art work, until satisfaction is found. The deepest, most important relationships never end. A painting is a relationship, but I am able to accept it is as complete when it sits well enough within the scope of my present knowledge. I have learned this: Revolutionary ideas are best realized by beginning new paintings. Personal relationships are different: If they are working, they are relentlessly inventive and unresolved.
