Revelation is interesting; possibly deceptive. I accept the painting Along for the Ride as complete. Is it perfect? Possibly; more likely it is the best it can be/thus the best it will ever be. It is knit together by a staccato of marks. My last three paintings contain repetitive marks. This worries me. My next painting will be reluctant to utilize the same methodology. Revelation comes through challenge. That seen, previously revealed, is always more of a question than an answer.
Yesterday's drawing came rapidly. It exploded after the concentration required to complete Along for the Ride. This drawing felt very good during its creation. I am reluctant to judge its merits. It certainly could be a precursor to my next painting. Mostly I needed to run after walking gingerly through the final phase of Along for the Ride.
