I am finding my "average" way of behavior. This is not easy, as being an artist implies an openness to life style and direction. However, there is ingrained in my DNA, and the knowledge I assimilated from my environment, a manner of understanding and seeing. This is my "mean," as in the mathematical "average." Am I saying one cannot escape his or her destiny? Matisse said, "When confused, look back to the impulses in your earliest work." He was saying it is best to look to your earliest, and simplest, natural impulses when solving complex problems. I believe we are constantly adjusting our impulses based upon our ongoing experiences. Viewing the "earliest work" helps in times of confusion, but it is only basic knowledge, and is incomplete.
Yesterday I revisited the painting "Two Men" and drawing #3 of 10/12/2011. I also made two additional drawings.
