Painting with less thoughts; purging judgements, tastes, plans and concepts
Painting with impressions—just impressions
Painting as pure aesthetic: impression, phenomena, sub-phenomena, sub-thinking
Today I draw a face—a man’s face with feathers and plants coming from the mouth. It looks like a Renaissance sculpture.
Eventually this face looks more like a Byzantine Madonna icon, the yellow ocre background resembling gold leaf. It grows to my distaste, wavering between a goth/hipster teenager. I leave it alone, facing the wall.
I decide larger-scale work, on canvas, heavily drawn, is calling me. I draw a panoramic “Miami Beach” scene with 3 figures, so far to my satisfaction.
I am still happy with my “Woman with Dog” from yesterday.
