Yesterday, after working on these two drawings I left the studio feeling awkward, and a bit stupid. Both of these drawings feel unfamiliar, peculiar, and alien to me. Who made these? Of course it was me. They came easily too. Now I feel I was off my track, as if derailed for a day. In making them I found a comfort zone which has little to do with me, except it was me. Yes, these drawings flew from a capricious and fickle part of me, seemingly without conflict. Strange day.
It is 4:34pm here. So I won't be getting into the studio today. I was distracted by my film class and a search for water in my pasture land (no further explanation). In any case, tomorrow I will be in my studio, bright and early, looking to correct my derailment and be true to myself.
