By George (that would be Hector) I think I’ve got it!

I futzed around and through purely non-scientific means discovered a way to make my images show up again…..maybe not the best or easiest way, but whatever.

So here’s what’s on the easel and drawing table now.

I’m working on these nudes as quickly as I can.  I find that if I let them sit on the easel too long, they start to stagnate.  I start hating them and don’t want to look at them.  Heh.  So I try to get them done as quickly as i can.  Also, I do not want, I will not, overwork them.  I am striving for the swift capture of the beauty, the thought, the sensation.  I am learning to let go of the fear and inhibitions.  Yes, I do want people to look at my art, hopefully like (love??) it, but at least see it.  But the most important part of this act of creation, is my own truth.  I must create it.  The trying to please others is the death of art….at least of my art.  I am giving myself the freedom (and permission) to paint precisely as I please.

How could it be otherwise?
