A line dragged on the surface of a fresh sheet of bleached paper appears just that-a scrawny etching of graphite on paper. If this is true, then why does it look so elegant, as if it is its own person? It begins tentatively but builds in resolve and finally fades with grace. Yet, even with its inherent beauty, it seems lonely. So I add other lines and brilliant acrylic mixes, until an entirely separate entity-a mango, perhaps, or a blue eye-peeks up at a surprised artist. An hour is a second, when lost in shape and color.
My friend thought I should take a more direct approach. She thought this was too abstract.
