There is an article in the January 2012 issue of The Smithsonian. Wow. It tells of Gertrude and Leo Stein, and how they collected early 20th century art. More important to me is the idea of their collecting Picasso and Matisse, just when these artists needed it. Picasso and Matisse were forging new ideas in art and needed support. The Stein's gave it to them, not just with money, but with encouragement. I am on my own out here, yet I know it is time to push my edges, to strip away and allow the forces which drive me to compel my art. These days of holidays do not allow me the time I need to do this, but there will soon be time enough. I can feel the burst a-coming.
The two drawings I made yesterday tell a little of this moving story, of me gathering the resources to do the big burst. Stay tune.
