This doing over is instructive, if not painful. The pain of feeling it ain't right, that I don't know enough to get it right, is yucky. Keep on keeping on... that is the route I am taking, as frustrating as it is. I accept the frustration as part of the journey. Looking at my work, in chronological context, reassures me. I know I am moving. If the work was static I would really be worried, I would fear for my sanity. I find the drawings more powerfully mine. This recent painting feels less emotionally connected to me. This must be a measure of facility. I draw connected, I paint with wonder. There is self-identity as I draw. There is a mind awash as I paint. The drawings have one solution; they are done in an hour or two. The paintings go on for days.
