Painting and writing.

While painting these last days, I was thinking about reworking and ordering my writings. Painting has always been a kind of free thinking refuge for me. Busy with the colors, my spirit is kind of set free to surf over an ocean of ideas, impressions and feelings and inexplicably, a selection of ideas establishes itself that answers my concerns of the moment.
I was feeling unsatisfied with the absence of a clear thread through the texts. Here under is the result of my last days of free thinking in the form of a table of content.

I terminated 24 of my ARTSENSE serie of 31 acrylics and the last 7 are already in an advanced stage. My plan is to terminate the acrylics and the book by year's end....
