It now appears that my great accomplishment in the past couple of years is learning to utilize all my drawing skills as I paint. This painting, shown today, is the first one where I feel comfortable in the same manner as when I draw. It feels so right, so good! This comfort in my active approach to painting is very important to the amount of painting I shall do. I admit, this difficulty, my discomfort while painting, has held me back, caused me to go slowly. As I made drawing after drawing, I wondered why I was not painting as much as I was drawing. Well, the answer is... "I did not comprehend the two forms of art-making as the same activity." As last I do. I ordered canvas, and stretchers, for twelve paintings, each 60 X 52 Inches. "Intimidation" (shown today) is 60 X 50 inches.
