2014 is beginning slowly, at least in the studio. Slow is not necessarily a bad thing. I am being thoughtful, and yes, a bit preoccupied. I will go to New York City tomorrow. I plan to see the Magritte exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, the Dutch works at the Frick Collection (including Vermeer's famous "Girl with a Pearl Earring"), and the Balthus exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
My slow procession into 2014 is allowing me to find a better way to view my own work. By this I mean my self-criticism is becoming more balanced and more accepting of my peculiar manner of seeing the world. Like George Bernard Shaw I believe my peculiar vision reflects my normality. I believe I see clearly. I will make my art with acceptance that my peculiar vision is normal vision. This is my year to find my niche and to accept it as my authenticity.
