Today's title alludes to the daily mystery of my efforts. I keep walking into the studio. Sometimes I have a lot energy, and insight comes easily. There are days when I feel energetic but insight is difficult to find. And then there are days when I feel like a noodle, limp and nearly useless, but working still brings nourishment. In spite of the inconsistency of living I walk into the studio every day. It is a necessity and a passion. In other words, I benefit whenever I work in the studio, but some days are more rewarding than others. Sad to say, but more than anything else I want to feel the zing of insight, touching truth by making marks on paper and canvas. This time of year, with the holidays and with family surrounding me, I feel more conflict than usual. Conflict also means distribution of energy. I want to make an important, insightful, successful painting right now, but I must accept tis the season where the strength and focus to do this is difficult to find.
Here are the drawings from yesterday:
