today i worked on kuan creek / by Philip Tarlow

today i revisited kuan creek, which i was finding too simple, to empty in a way that wasn't justified. it needed to be "messed up." i needed to dive in, and, once again, get my mind out of the way. to lose my mind. i think it's improved. more interesting as a painting, more peppered with happy, suggestive accidents and coloristically more varied and musical. i think it sings now.
