"... As, in a theatre,
The lights are extinguished, for the scene to be changed
With a hollow rumble of wings, with a movement of darkness on darkness...

"In order to possess what you do not possess
    You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
    You must go through the way in which you are not."

- from East Coker III of the Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot.
Winter Work in the Dark
Autumn yielded exploratory drawings in preparation for winter work on paintings and prints.

I'm not sure how things will turn out, but I am sure that some uncertainty is necessary to move forward artistically.

More to see in the coming months.
