All fields are a life in waiting no less than all gardens await a revival or a disappearing. A life in flux. Resetting time, living in the past and the present , a work in progress like the paintings here made during this summer. A small area of the garden (viewed from the same position each time) which changes all the time and is so transient that it serves so well as a model for the paintings.
These drawings are an attempt to fix (crystalize) an idea that came from the previous paintings and are laid out on the floor while I work it out. I think I can see where this might be going: there are some people I need to look at; late Cezanne ; Siennese painting, perhaps Pierro della Francesca ; Matisse; Diebenkorn, just people to look at. If anyone has a suggestion I would be keen to hear it.
