Space and time required...
It did not surprise me much. I'm getting used to it. A big change one day is followed by a quandary the next. Such it was with the painting "Unexpected." Yesterday I did not paint. Sorting it all out is like looking at a river basin full of river stones. I know the stone I like is there, but how do I find it, and how do I know it is the right one? I will have to look at a million stones to securely know the one I like the best. I do like the second drawing I made yesterday (immediately below). I do not like yesterday's first drawing (at end of today's post). This tells me that I like invented and robust forms more than those which more closely approach nature. Take a look at the difference between the noses in yesterday's two drawings to better understand this comment. In drawing #2 the guy's nose is a robust triangle, while in drawing #1 her nose more closely mimics natural reality: boring!
