I will never get there. I will always be on a journey. I strive for peacefulness, but resting always results in a store of energy, and consequently, a way and means, and a need, to take the next step in the journey. Journeys are not restful, but they are exciting, invigorating, and self-motivating. Consistent peace is an illusion.
Untitled Triptych-08·13·2014 is getting closer to the end of its journey. In the meantime, my drawings are opening up new directions. I am not sure it is obvious, but my comprehension of form has changed. There is additional fullness. Each form speaks for itself, rather than simply being a part of everything else. In other words, each and every form carries with it a strength of interest as it relates to itself, while concurrently relating to the entirety, and other forms, within the composition. This is very exciting to me. It opens new roads to take. The journey feels as if it is just about to begin. No rest, or complacency, is possible.
