When it’s your best work

art in progressAren’t there times when you just know you’re doing your best work, not only when it’s flowing, but that your work has just taken a leap up to the next level?   I think it’s happening to me today.   An old framed piece that includes a mat with a thick black line was pulled out from the dustbin,, and I swear, I could see an entirely new piece in there, in very strong black and white.  It’s an abstract, or at least a semi-abstract , since there is a human figure who is clearly wilting under the weight of a computer motherboard…..well, maybe I’ll disguise that part a bit, but , for me, that’s the part that gives this more emotional resonance than my other abstracts, which are more stream of conscious and instinctive.  This one does have a clear thought and feeling underlying , and so it becomes more meaningful, and the art itself is complex and will be a knockout piece.  I know, since I’ve already foreseen it its frame.   Shown is a vignette of the art in its infancy stage.

Oh, yes.  I have a show coming up with the opening on March 11th, at the Avalon Salon in San Rafael, B Street, between 4th and 5th, from 5pm -9pm, as part of that night’s Art Walk.
