My drawings, and my paintings, are turning, churning, transforming me and my art. The end of pretense has occurred. Take a look at the trend in my recent work. This is serious stuff, but not devoid of humor. Life goes on. Covid-19 goes on. My art goes on. These are difficult times. There is no such thing as a time devoid of worry. Art continues to be made; despite the fray my art gets made; it is a way of dealing with the fray. I think of my art as an evolving species. The fit survive; the new ones are better than those in the past. The archeology of my work clearly describes Evolution.
Yesterday's drawing is state 1; today I will examine it, alter it, become satisfied with it. This drawing will not change drastically, but it will become nuancedly better.
There is another species that is working hard to disappear: Republicans. Every Republican president since Dwight D. Eisenhower has overseen a recession, This goes for Ronald Reagan, this goes for Donald Trump. Democratic Presidents, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton among them, have pulled the U.S. back from the mistakes of their Republican predecessors. There were no recessions under Obama and Clinton; the Markets surged under these Democratic presidents, then fell during the terms of their Republicans successors; very bad recessions occurred under Bush II, and now a terrible one is occurring under Trump. Are not Republicans ripe for extinction, at least in the form they now exist? When does idiocy not alter a species?
