Am I Free. Signed as finished today, the first started in full from my new studio.

Monday 08 October

 This painting literally arrived. I stretched the canvas and painted the white gesso primer, but somehow didn't want the gesso to cover the whole canvas. I have a thing about the presence and absence of God. Both always (to me) true. So some of this canvas is opaque and some translucent. Then the person arrived, reaching out. Then the light, then the shadows. I couldn't tell if this was an active exuberant approach or fearful departure for him/her. I felt hesitancy. The question arose - Am I Free?
