No, I did not get to the beaches of Maine yesterday, but I did make art. Today I will go to Ogunquit, Maine and the Atlantic Ocean. Yesterday in the studio I revisited the painting "Two Men." There is a new feature on my web site, MEHRBACH.com. The page Paintings of 2010 & 2011 exhibits all paintings, both complete and in progress, worked on during the last year. "Two Men" is there in its previous state, and dated "In Progress, June 2011." So I have not revisited this painting in 4 months. A lot has happened since June; I have learned a lot. You can see this in my one day revision of "Two Men." It is much better. I did not touch the man on the left, but the man on the right is completely re-painted (except for his right hand—on viewer's left). I am reveling in my newfound ability to find satisfactory solutions. Before yesterday this was an uncomfortably unsolved painting, labored upon for weeks, but in one day it took a big leap toward solution! I am feeling good; time to go to the beach!
Yesterday's drawing is also a good one. Its form-wrapping complexity displays my skillfulness in comprehending and rendering layered forms.
