"They Are Obviously Headed in the Right Direction" - mixed media on cradled wood panel, 20" x 24" x 1". Ready to hang (back has been pre-wired for hanging). Available here and at Artfinder.
How do any of us know where the heck we are going?
Ok, ok, we point ourselves in a direction, set goals, take some steps and maybe, like me, look for signs. But here's the thing about signs. They are only useful if you see them. And then they are only meaningful if you spend some time reflecting on them. If your family happens to have a bit of a science slant to it, you might also find yourself doing little tests to verify what you think you glean from signs.
Or, you can just head off down the path that has you enthralled and just see where you end up. :)
They Are Obviously Headed in the Right Direction
I suppose the point of my meanderings here is that we really can't know until we know.
Until then, we're required to sit patiently (and maybe a bit uncomfortably) in the pocket of unknowing even as we take steps in that one direction...because, "a point in every direction, is the same as no point at all" - Harry Nilsson, The Point.
And that is exactly where we are supposed to be.
About the painting - this is a "paint over." It has been a good long while since I was painting over older pieces of work. In truth, I was out of boards and grabbed the nearest one. You can see the smallest bits of the underpainting through the layers on the new piece, which has been reoriented to a horizontal.
This piece is also painted entirely with a squeegee. Because if you are going to impulsively paint over your work, you might as well go crazy.
