Just Shapes

Arranging and re arranging shapes in  a square could take up days and days of my time. I try and look at it and see if it can get it any more poignant or more noticeable. How can this be more perfect, more thoughtful, more memorable?--Does this feel how I want it to, even if I don't fully understand the feeling yet? Without subject matter that relates to anything specific, these kind of paintings are deliciously open. They are, for me, the most difficult. Sometimes I play around with a jpeg of the image on the computer to see if I can problem solve the particular painting if I get stuck.....This one below is working now, although the actual painting is more dull and drab than this jpeg. This is where I want to go with it tomorrow.

I love that question, 'Does this feel how I want it to, even if I don't fully understand the feeling yet?" I often think about the idea of "making something out of nothing.' The "something" does have content, power, authority--and though it is hard to describe or pin down--it does guide you through. (perhaps with quite a few side trips!)

There is also the idea in this question that at some point, you do grasp the feeling behind a painting--and I've noticed that sometimes this comes considerably later, after the painting has been finished and is out into the world. But all along there was an intuitive understanding that guided the work.

Yes. Exactly. It seems almost obvious later. But at the time it can be foggy. Amazing that others would have this same hit on it...
