No, you can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime, you just might find
You get what you need
Being an artist is always making the effort to understand oneself. This is the act of "trying," as in the words from the lyrics of the song, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Rolling Stones. Indeed, "you get what you need." What I need right now is to quickly examine and sort out the forms and themes of my art. In times like these I gravitate toward the quickness of drawing, but it is not what I want. Painting is what I want. Painting speaks more volumes of ideas, and it gives more to the viewer, and to myself. However, paintings take an extended time to produce, and therefore sit more in the realm of summative art than in the realm of inquisitive examination (though paintings are both, just biased or skewed toward summation, since they required summative skills).
So today I show yesterday's two drawings. I did not paint.
