Blind Contour Abstraction

It’s true, it’s true — really!  The first in another new series of small paintings/drawings, these shapes were made without looking at the paper, based on images off of streaming TV.  I did look, though, as I colored them in, so idk, is that cheating?  🙂

aka “Rabbit’s Wardrobe in Disarray.”

For one half of a life you work, spurred on by this expectation [for recognition]. During the second half you work to prove to yourself you can do without it, that the loss of the illusion has made no difference. Then gradually you forget altogether. You work in order to be able to die painting.
