a gentle head



strong wind & bright sun - both drying and energizing.

I make and paint a rough wood collage of drawing no 14. (below)

challenging colours already laid down with conviction, needing the laid colour for a proposal that I can overlay -using the mistaken complementary underneath to electrify the right as it flows over.
later
paint and repaint, now complete obliteration of the previous ideas, searching a solution.
it arrives suddenly and colours park themselves. I befriend them, for I am a stranger to them.
