The biggest difference I see in my artistic activity is my ability to do good work despite the depletion of energy from the rest life. Yesterday's three drawings surprised me. The last is different than the first (they are shown in order of production). I almost wrote, "the last is better than the first," but I realized their differences is what surprises me, and elates me. I can do this. I can do it on days when I am tired, or confused, or distracted by other issues in life. I have less control over what spills out. My creative produce astonishes me. This is good, because my verbal intellect is losing control and being replaced by something far deeper. I am trusting spontaneity and intuition, more and more, with each drawing. This may answer the reason drawing is so much more important than painting, right now. It is me trusting my deepest intellectual decision-making process which I practice. I am doing this without self-critique. This is moving me toward more substantial work, which will flow from me in the same manner when I face a canvas with a brush loaded with paint.
