I am an artist, not a writer. My Intent is not to educate, enlighten or inspire but rather to clarify my motivations to myself. I find that when I write down the thoughts and reasons that I take certain paths, it helps me to avoid repeating the same mistakes over and over again. Let's face it, authentic work evolves through a series of mistakes, lessons learned and options eliminated.

Need opinions on new piece
"Carp" 22"x 35"
I felt the need to do something more literal than usual. Is it compatible with my body of abstract work? Can an artist work in two directions at once? I try to follow my instincts and this felt right at the time but I still want to do non objective work as well. I would appreciate your thoughts.
