But for the cut of this dress, I don't think it would have made the cut here. Sometimes failure in painting is a kind of badge of courage, sometimes it is just clumsy. Failure as an operating principle is not my end goal. I am not pushing to failure in mechanical execution but instead to a kind of elegant clumsiness. The hand-made has the ability to be much more evocative in its execution. That said, I think this drawing is just darn clunky. But as I am posting a drawing a day, I figure this is my a makeup drawing, and I am forgiven, I hope.
