The progress I am making toward self-realization is exhilarating. Yesterday the woman, in the painting "Two," came easily. This does not mean her transformation came without a lot of work. "Easily," in this context, means her realization spilled out of me as water does over a fall. She, and the man, took hours of time and effort. Yesterday was a good day for my painting. The man's revised head also makes more sense to me, as it replaces a boyish and bloated head (look at yesterday's post for comparison). Today the man's body will be the focus. The acuity, and skill, I am exhibiting, in making this painting, are instilling me with great optimism. I soon will have the stuff to make paintings which reflect the profound intricacy I feel within. Human existence is complex. I want my paintings to reflect my knowledge of this complexity. The realization on canvas of my perception will increase as the quality of my work better approaches the ideas and feelings I wish to express. Profoundness requires the highest level of skill to communicate. I am aware it is coming. At his moment in my life, insight, perception, and comprehension, are occurring rapidly.
After all the excitement demonstrated in the previous paragraph, I must admit to disliking the drawing I made yesterday. It is a simple, "practice," drawing, and does not stand well as individual work of art.
