Sometimes I feel like a desperate flattener. In the twentieth century the transition to flatness of the picture plane was so aggressive, beginning with Cezanne, and pushed to one possible ultimate conclusion by Jackson Pollack, that I sometimes succumb to this idiom. I don't believe that completely happened in yesterday's first drawing. In yesterday's second drawing I certainly reacted to the first drawing's central head, flattened, as it is, for composition's sake. Yesterday's second drawing is forcefully spheroidal. Enjoy the process!
