There are days, like yesterday, when I am motivated to research a particular problem. These particular problems often take me away from art-making. I seem to examine the way I place a nose on a face, or set an eye-ball in the head. This totally distracts me from the reason I am there. I am not there to be a technician, although being a technician is required of an artist. In any case, yesterday's drawing #1 (below) feels completely awkward to me (I shelved it immediately). Drawing #2 is better ― it was a reaction to the dismal failure I felt when finishing off #1. I did stretch the large canvas I have told you about. Now I have a 60X72 inch canvas waiting for a new painting. That feels good.
