Yesterday was one of those black days, marked by severe pain. Then I found a painkiller, but it didn’t help much either. What to do? I decided to paint the pain away. Assuming not much would come out of my painting, I took a begun sheet that was pretty botched but showed some good ideas.
As if that weren’t enough, the stock market crashed yesterday and my shares rattled into the cellar.
Many hours with Schubert sonatas (Alfred Brendel) and painting distracted me from my pain and what came out of it is certainly one of the better works I recently did. My ambition to conquer abstract painting for me is gradually taking shape.
Most of all, I’m connected to the choice of colors and the construction, which is both powerful and sensitive. (The colors on the original are better. I bought a new scanner, which unfortunately did not scan true to color.)
