Two studio drawings from today and yesterday. The top is 9x12 pastel and charcoal, and the bottom 9x12, charcoal only. Thor, the fabulous artist whose studio I share, did a lot of work this past week, and "naturally" rearranged the table with all the studio junk. I told him I was not going to do anything with the table until he was gone, so that I knew it wouldn't change for a while.
As I suggested earlier, this table represents the muck of creation for me. I'm searching it for something, an entry point, a means to something I haven't quite glimpsed yet, a way forward. As you may have guessed, and even if you didn't, I've been looking at the drawings and paintings that Diebenkorn did in the late 50's - early 60's, when he was doing studio drawings and paintings (and prints). I think there's something in that work to build upon.
