The wonder of conclusion.
Painting-07·28·2013 is pushing itself toward conclusion. There are wonderful and various emotions surrounding a work of art's conclusive period. I am experiencing them right now. There is satisfaction, and there is insecurity, in equal measures. A work will never be as wonderful as I envision its best of all possibilities, and it is more wonderful than I originally envisioned. The later because upon its origin it had no definitive direction, and the former because it can be better than its eventual end. All of this keeps me making art, looking for perfection in concept and conclusion, which never will happen. So I go back, looking for impossible clarity.
