Alternate Title: Eight was Enough
Yesterday resulted in a burst of drawings. I was researching possible directions. The outcome is my realization that the possibilities are endless, and they are all valid. This is me questioning a means to self-expression. This is me realizing there are no limits. This is me realizing each work of art can be categorized as "good," or "not so good," to its depth of authentic expression.
Yesterday's drawings are shown in Gallery Format. Click on an image to enlarge it. The images are not titled under their reproductions, but all can be referenced as "Untitled Drawing-01·10·2015", #1 through #9 with the exception that #5 is missing (I miscounted, there never was a #5). The media of the drawings is pencil on paper, each drawing is 11X14 inches in dimension.
Finally, yesterday's work spells the beginning of me "just doing it." The necessary skills have been in place for a long time. It is the approach that has now changed. It has changed because of my acceptance that each work I make will be successful, or not so successful. I also accept that the moment of creation is its own validity. Each work is part of the process. Each is a piece of research. None are failures. Each work of art, when introspectively examined, will move me toward greater cognizance of who I am, and how I may best express myself through my art.
