Right now I feel caught in the middle. Through drawing I am trying to break down barriers born of routine while trying to finish a rather traditional painting. The painting (02·26·2013) is in its fourteenth state; one extremity gets solved one day at a time. Yesterday's drawing shines in some ways; there are drawing solutions which offer me hope for higher levels of expression. I particularly like the middle man's pants (as I write this I am reminded of Cezanne's quip about his "Portrait of Vollard"). Cezanne's evaluation of his Vollard portrait was this: "The shirtfront is good." (After my work see Cezanne's "Portrait of Ambroise Vollard".)
