I'm always surprised at this point in a painting by how much I don't, or didn't see.

A couple drawings from one of the several sketchbooks that I have going. The drawing of the clown is after a painting at the Philbrook here in Tulsa. I've only seen it once in an anniversary show.

These are a few monotypes, from a demo for class last fall.

Rio Chama Valley, in northern New Mexico. Auctioned to support Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Oklahoma this spring, in Still Water.

A while ago I ordered some paper on a roll. This drawing is about 6 ft. long. the material at the moment is just charcoal. There seem to be some nice things happening in some places. The far right seems to be out of step with the rest. It has some strength, and movement though. I find that I spend a lot of time looking, I need to know what is actually happening before I can move further.

This is the final state of what is now titled personal space. Things ended up getting more fragmented than I had hoped. Another canvas is stretched and ready to go.

Battle between Heroes and Mediocrity

I decided to stop messing with this. I am no longer in the place I was when it all started and if I go on, I will unpaint most of it. I started it as a diptych, so that I could solve some issues with composition and edges. I don't know now if I've solved anything.
