It was a good day in the studio. I wrestled the painting "Window" to a viable solution. The feeling it is right comes from my personal surprise. I would not have expected this painting, which began with three characters (two of them female), to be solved in this manner. The foreshortening of the female figure is so dramatic as to drive exhilaration; remember this painting is 60 inches wide, which makes her foot dramatically larger than life-size.
The drawing made yesterday is also good, although not one of my best. Mostly I enjoy the spatial depth provide by the relationship between the two heads, which includes a diagonal from left front to right rear (as if this flat plane has depth).
I need a day of rest and recreation. There will be no post tomorrow.
