I can now declare 2017 No.7 done and over. I am over it. I am moving on. Questions remain. Possibilities remain. Options were not followed and possibilities are open to dispute. There are a few suspicions I would like to put to rest, but not here, not now. I know this debate, this interrogation, will come again, in another painting. So, I move on, allowing 2017 No.7 to be the best it can be at this juncture.
Before 2017 No.7 lit up, became brighter, I made yesterday's drawing. I am beginning to understand that my question of the day often surfaces in my drawing, then moves into the painting. Yesterday's drawing is filled with white and light, and has a geometric, compositional solution. The painting took on more white and light too, practiced, as it was, in the drawing.
