And so once again I have taken on more than I can be successful at: I inadvertently chose a website theme which will not support the format I need for my work. Impulsive as always I opened my blog without doing the necessary research and now to continue I must change themes, reformat, and basically start all over. I have neither the time nor energy to do that and so I am going to make do with what is here. With apologies to my friend who really doesn’t want to look at dozens of figure studies I am going to post some over the next few days from the hundreds I have done. They are an interesting study in growth in visual awareness and in the ongoing struggle for control over this slippery medium. I will have to leave it up to the viewer to decide their progression as being me I never dated them and they were never filed in any methodical way.
one of the early studies above and two more recent below:
some are cropped to be more”acceptable”
This seems to be who I am- a chaotic dreamer of dreams reaching beyond what is possible and unable to accept what is. But I do know that I am unwilling to spend time fighting this computer just to get the blog restructured in an attempt to display them well. So here are a few to start with using the format that I have. And while this post is up I have poetry to write and another version of the marsh painting under way. If hope could enter my heart once more oh then my brush would dance.I can imagine the possible and it is glorious!
All these things take time of which there is so little when hope has fled.
