Notes to myself on beginning a painting - Richard Diebenkorn.
I am secretly delighted by some of these....perverse carefulness is intriguing! As is using the destructive potential of boredom. Chaos, now, that is a steady state in my studio and in many of my paintings. It is certainly the state of my calendar. "Attempt what is not certain" - this is a call to ADVENTURE and EXPLORATION! Oh yes! My heart sings at that one.
And so, this little piece, following some of these rules on top of a workshop start, leaves me a little giddy and mildly euphoric. Can one be just a little euphoric? Perhaps that makes me just a smidgeon Pollyanna. :)
