January 2011



What incompleteness shifts us forward? Longing that tastes like nectar.
1.1.2011


How many lives layered in one experience?
1.2.2011


Drawing leaves and drawing arrives.
1.3.2011


Continents shift. Ocean exposed.
1.4.2011


Transition underway. Anxiety and excitement of travel.
1.5.2011


Overlapping timezones.
1.6.2011


Snow piles on tiny branches.
1.7.2011


Mapping hemispheric traversals from hot spots to cold spots and images to words.
1.8.2011


Left hand path. I've added a new studio exercise: all lefty improvisation. I hope to reveal imagery more directly from the non-verbal.
1.9.2011


While improvising lefty my hand seems to make pictures on its own. I notice only the physical sensations like repetitive looping. When I bring my attention back to this image I recognize that a bridge has formed.
1.10.2011


Whole brain. Both hands contribute. A new perspective on the cycle.
1.11.2011


Reentry shock wave. A sharp change of pressure in the narrow region between dream and reality.
1.12.2011


Family portrait. While I sat on the bus doodling I stewed about the tension and drama played out in the previous half hour. The struggle to get everyone awake, fed, dressed warmly and out of the house on time. I glanced up at the drawing and recognized it was the four of us on the page.
1.13.2011


A moment of convergence. The drawing was improvised left hand then right. The purple phylogon in the center is a moment of detachment. From the outside you would recognize it as an eye with a distant look.
1.14.2011


Tree. Stream. Deep roots.
1.15.2011


The tree motif repeats. Is it a metaphor for growth? Knowledge? Or a warmer reality? Are we dealing with a meaningful persistence or a simple longing for spring?
1.16.2011


Subtle stratigraphy. The thread connecting seasons, latitudes or moods.
1.17.2011


Discordant flow. Hit the wall. Cope with style.
1.18.2011


Awake in deep sleep.
1.19.2011


First there was ice. Then there was snow. Then there was ice. And then there was more snow.
1.20.2011


Leisurely unrolling worlds as if experience could be mapped.
1.21.2011


Working against restrictions. Improvising within limits. Flow exists.
1.22.2011


Lazy river. Nonlinear path. Steadily toward the ocean.
1.23.2011


A window between inside and outside.
1.24.2011


Searching for the vanishing point.
1.25.2011


A shifting vanishing point vorticises the landscape.
1.26.2011


Two storms. Union of opposites establishes new ground.
1.27.2011


The meandering channel fills the lake. Deposits accumulate.
1.28.2011


Accreting experience.
1.29.2011


Full circle. Seeing the same thing differently and the same.
1.30.2011


Mindful experience. In it and aware of it simultaneously.
