drawing with applique

The mark on a painting.

How that mark affects the space around it.  The space may lean into the mark.  Or the mark may lean into the space.  Or gravity pulls the space into the mark.

You need to go into that place of risk where you're not quite sure what's going to happen.  You have to push things into that fragile, vulnerable space between the mark and the surrounding space.  Get into that place where you don't know what's going to happen.  It's very difficult.

It takes its toll.

I am a field of grass

Life is a luminous halo

a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us

from the beginning of consciousness to the end.       Virginia Woolf

 To me, the only hope is in art.

If we can reforest our world and put a moratorium on a lot of the things we're doing, the world will heal itself.  The creative force of being human, which is found in art, is also found in technology.

The irony is that we are here for such an incredibly short period of time, just a moment really, and all I am doing is what I can do in that moment.
