The figures in my drawings are overwhelming the space. A few days ago I enlarged my drawing format to 16 X 20 inches for just one drawing (see post of 03/02/2012). I have to return to that larger format. Yesterday's three drawings, each on 11 X 14 inch paper, show cramped forms within tight spaces. I need more room to move and play. Then there is painting. I have always gravitated toward larger paintings, feeling most comfortable when the size is at least 50 X 60 inches. Willem de Kooning often chose 60 X 70 inch canvas, Picasso's favorite size was 38 X 50 inches.
