Up & Downs
Nothing much was done on the painting Untitled Triptych-08·13·2014, but the drawing I found interesting in process and in completion. For the painting I had to jump into it the same way I would jump off a cliff sitting above a quarry pool. Being in front of Untitled Triptych-08·13·2014 is scary, like staring down at the pool from the top of a cliff. The time of the drop, between cliff top and water, is the most mysterious part of the journey, but it must be done. I know I can complete this thing, and that its finality will be rewarding, but the in-between time is enigmatically full of thought and confusion. That's why I should ignore it and simply take the plunge! I am not going to dwell any more on this this analogy because, if I do, it is simply an excuse not to do that which I must do, i.e. complete the damn thing!
