I am in the midst of a turn. I can feel the centripetal force pulling on me. I need to let go and find where the turn would not have me go. Everyone knows Newton's first law says one must go in a straight line unless an outside force is placed upon one. I want to make the outside force disappear, I don't want to round the corner, I want to find my true straight line. I looked back today, at work as old as the 1990's, and it made me know I have accomplished more than I feel. (I was storing the recent work I feel is too good to destroy.) So this leaves me in the present, with many accomplished tools, and the force which distracts me: I never feel I have enough of the basic skills so I keep practicing the rudiments. I must deny this distraction and get back on the straight line. I am doing that. Today I made two drawings, one practiced the basic skill of form building and the inter-relationship of form to form, and the second was a study for the new painting I am about to begin (here and now). I hated the first drawing and will not post it. I like the second drawing, so here it is...
I continued to prepare the stretcher and canvas for the painting I will begin tomorrow. Dawn of a new day is where I am. Please, watch it happen here. Thank you.
