I regard these little paintings as exercises which I tire of after an hour or two. They are like sketches with paint. I do miss working on bigger projects--that begin with a vision or a compulsion which I feel driven to bring into being. Perhaps this is not the time to be undertaking such a project when most of my time and energy is devoted to soaking up the creative energies in which I am immersed. Perhaps the big projects will come later after I've digested a bit.
