Five sketches

Working with the computerized sketching I do about ten at each sitting. This is great because I just want to get them out quickly with as little thinking process as possible. Philip Guston had a practice where he would sit at and paint a canvas,I bet rigorously, until the painting is done before getting up. This strikes me as immediate, crucial to the creative transition the journey to another place that is important.

From this sitting, before going to bed, I shall choose these five from the lot. I imagine them to be around 5 feet in dimension as I work. I wait for the day when I can produce them on that scale as a hard copy painting.

The early surrealists abstract painters looked at ‘automatic writing as a means to transcend intentional results and be mindful of their mindless act. This I hope will lead to responsible freedom of living.anacalypsis common canyon plain coyote
