My title refers to the reason for my posting late today. I am taking a morning class at a local college on the films of Robert Altman. Today we watched "Gosford Park." I may eventually comment on these films, but today I mention it simply to describe why I posted late. The class is every Thursday, so I will be late posting for the next seven Thursdays. "Gosford Park" is a great film; the most sophisticated mystery I have every seen. Its complexity gives it tremendous value, but it is its profundity which makes it great. I will return to this tomorrow because it does relate to my work. But today I want to show you yesterday's work and then go immediately to the studio. I am only going to eke out about two hours of art-making today. Also, it snowed last night. I need to shovel snow and finish the cleanup.
Robert Altman made a visually beautiful film in "Gosford Park." My painting "Window" is in an ugly phase while I work out the details of the figures. Yesterday I did more work on the reclining nude, and much more work is still required. The drawing from yesterday continued my striving to go straight at emotive sensibility. That's all for now; I need to go and work.
