June 22, 2010

Drawing trees, on a walk, the direction and movement of their limbs, interconnected, and the shapes of the spaces they make. These drawings often are the start for a studio painting.
"The walk magnified is the journey" - the big landscape and then the closeness of a tree.

I found A POEM IS A WALK by A.R. Ammons - "I take the walk to be the externalization of an
interior seeking...".
There are many drawings done on walks in these books that I carry with me. So much looking,
then really seeing something, and then making a drawing.

I like the photo of your stack of notebooks to complement the drawings. A reminder of the amount of process that goes into four perfect works to share.
