a dream

Today I made this tower. It is almost night. You can see the sun standing low. Sometimes I dream about creating in a tower. All day long I will make one piece of art after the other. Then… when the day is almost over and the sun is turning red I will take all the art I made and climb the stairs towards the tower roof. Standing there, enjoying the view and the fresh air, I set all my art free to soar on the winds and find its proper owners…

And I will do that day after day after day…

Today I was working on this drawing/painting. I’ve already worked on it a lot on various occasions. But I never really liked the way it turned out. The only part I really liked was the part on the above right side. Since I kept wresting with the whole thing today once again, I decided to keep only that part and just paint away the rest. Now it is talking to me again. Not finished, I think, but we’re back on track together.

Maybe the proces of this piece of art is telling me that it is okay to be radical sometimes, that it is okay to cut things out of my life that don’t work or that I don’t like.
