Restarts aren’t clean breaks sometimes

I’ve written about processing the value of having shown work, and making studies to generate new ideas. I’ve also started a new piece (based on an old one) that to me feels less about running off in an entirely new direction and more like… veering.

As soon as I got the drawing onto the canvas, which was stapled to the studio wall, it became clear that a container for all these containers would be more dramatic if the angles weren’t all 90°. Shaped canvases require learning about mitering acute and obtuse angles- the first take (pre-“research”, IE YouTube) was of course entirely wrong.
