How can one do anything without being clear about what is intended? Lacking clarity of intention is a big problem. So here is a shot at it.
Painting. I intend for the work to have its own reality, presence, to find that in nature, to develop it in the painting. As I work, the painting must come to direct my choices by its needs. I intend for the drawing to be graceful and complete. Lines moving magically through the space they simultaneously create. I intend for the color to be luminous, to have the paint become the light.
That would be great. That is what I work on.
