I wish emotional, intellectual, and physical energy were constant, but they are not. Yesterday's fantastical drawing is me relaxing. I doubt its substantiality, but maybe it is better than I believe it is. Being tired is not always painful. In fact, it may be informative. Making this drawing was kind of fun. Perhaps there is more to me than I know. I believe, as I come out of my local (in time) funk, new sprouts (in terms of possible directions) will be an outcome.
Yesterday was Father's Day. My son, who is an educated musician who enjoys music composed for motion pictures, spoke to me about Hans Zimmer. Zimmer says he looks to the painter Gerhard Richter for inspiration (go to on-line Q&A with Zimmer). Perhaps I should look to Gerhard Richter as well. His playfulness, in terms of vastly different styles, from figurative to abstract, illustrate the possibilities of one artist exhibiting multiple interests. Here are two of his works.
