I have declared the painting Along for the Ride complete. I am moving on. Along for the Ride is just what its title says it is... I allowed it to pull me in, give me a bumpy ride, call questions at me, force me to investigate with possible answers. I feel it is similar to Pablo Picasso's famous Les Demoiselles d’Avignon; it is what it is; it has as many questions as it has answers; it makes the viewer uncomfortable; it leads me toward work of great substance. I like it. I dislike it. Time to move on.
Yesterday's drawing came slow, then rapid. It is a test, research! Along for the Ride is off my painting wall. There's a clear space to place a white canvas. Today!
