Remarkable is yesterday's drawing. It surprised me. This drawing is indicative of a change in heart, intellect, and intuition. It took well over three-quarters of my studio time to complete, but was well worth it. I feel, at least right now, that this drawing is a landmark on my journey to full expression.
I do not want to distract you from yesterday's alteration in Untitled Triptych-08·13·2014. It too is important, not so much for it magnitude as for its subtleness. The quality of the activity was important. I worked on the woman's head in the right panel, and the stripes that are the wall behind her. Rather than sweeping changes I made subtle changes. There is a different type of control in such an activity. This vintage of activity is often seen in my drawing, but it has been difficult for me to bring it into my painting. Color and composition come first in my painting, and details second. However, this sort of detail oriented work is necessary if I am to achieve the high degree of expressive success I seek in my painting.
