Long ago I heard a lecture by Leonard Bernstein in which he spoke of the inevitability of Beethoven's music. Bernstein said after Beethoven wrote the first note of a composition the entire composition became inevitable. It is not that easy. This image of Bernstein's, where the first note is followed inevitably by the second and the third et cetera, is similar to the idea that the first mark on a blank canvas defines the final result. The inevability of a compostion becomes true at a certain point, and I have reached that point with the painting "Window." The painting "Window" is in its refinement stage. I have accepted the theme and its imagery. Now I must make it fulfill its destiny. This is where the work and labor follow an inevitable path based upon who I am right now. My knowledge and psyche define the final result, if I do the work to get there.
Here is the one drawing I made yesterday.
