starting the over-painting in oil / by Philip Tarlow

1:32 PM: the perilous vibrancy of the trembling unknown: this is how i might describe what is happening with motion 13. if you click on the image and make it full screen, you will see the "content" in the way deKooning described it: "a glimpse of something, an a flash."

12:38 PM: i began working over the under-drawing this morning, scraping just enough of the oil paint i'm using away so as to allow fugitive areas of the drawing to appear here and there. i just saw something i want to work more on, so i'll stop this post here & continue later.
