I wish it were easier to live with the emotions of living. There is so much complexity in each moment. Living is confusing, and worrisome, if one dwells upon all one understands about life, living, and one's relationships. For me, the way to simplify it all, to toss off the coat of complexity, is to open the door, walk in the studio, and begin to draw. That is what I did yesterday. I had a good day! I get myself in trouble with worry and doubt if I allow myself to be preoccupied with "what it all means." It is far better to simply show up and do.
Each of the four drawings I made yesterday are very good. The formula for me is to have no formula. I have to show up and let it happen. Yesterday I also placed re-touch varnish on the painting "Intimidation." I placed it back on the painting wall and quickly realized the head of the woman on the left is too large. I want to finish this painting within the next couple of weeks and deliver it to the AVA Gallery Summer Show on June 19th.
