Figures gone to grounddrawing - 1
Figures in contrast

Ground
(plain?)
(line?)

Figure

Form is containeddrawing - 3 (1)
Between lines

Lines contain space
Something forms

Points comit to paper
Points connect in line
Line commits to proportions
Proportions commit to something real

Content

Real commitment to paper
Paper is ground

Box is hard to draw

Stone/rock
We love,
Even harder

Drawing without content
Not art making

The feeling will come in
The feeling will come through
Different feelings
Different drawings

Harried lines are stress lines
Sure lines curve expressive

These firm straight lines
These firm straight lines curve

Volumes of other spaces
Form volumes not vessels

Is the rock in the box or
Does the box contain the rock

Every drawing is unfinished
Every one has a future
