Progress report. This little red chair always gives me a workout; sharing some growing pains. Perspective is a challenge as most of the planes are fairly close to, but not quite parallel to my eye level. why do i put myself through the struggle of understanding? to make sure my skills are intact, to go someplace i have not been before, to feel the unfulfilled desire of the visual potential, submersion/merging with the object of desire, and then? eventually an inner sounding of 'it is!' happens. then i will stop and the work will 'be' of itself.
ps: no oil paint: chalk, gesso, egg, water, aluminum gild.
