I'll show you two new works today, one drawing and the beginning of a new painting. This new painting is very important to me as it marks a new beginning. It marks my surrender to works of relatively large scale (larger than 60" in at least one dimension) and of a new complexity in number of figures and situations which these figures inhabit. Here are the two works from today...
The drawing is a study for the painting. The painting is shown after 3 hours of work. The right leg of the central figure (on the viewer's left) went through many positions until I settled upon its present position. The fish, and the other two figures, were quickly sketched as compostional elements and will be refined tomorrow. I intend to to keep you updated on this painting's progress because of the importance I attach to it. I know it difficult to read in this photo (remember this painting is approximately 60 X 70 inches so you are seeing it shrunk almost beyond comprehension).
