How can one do anything without being clear about what is intended?
Lacking clarity of intention is a big problem.
So here is a shot at it.
I intend for the work to have its own reality, presence, to find that in nature, to develop it in the painting.
As I work, the painting must come to direct my choices by its needs.
I intend for the drawing to be graceful and complete. Lines moving magically through the space they simultaneously create.
I intend for the color to be luminous, to have the paint become the light.
That would be great.
That is what I work on.
