When I was nine a family friend gave me The Nothing Book. I carried it everywhere and this habit became permanent — I am never without my journal. My sketchbooks hold my brain: the galumphing to-do list, jottings, inspiration, places to visit, music to listen to, books to read, movies to see, endless doodles, potential painting titles, dreams and schemes, kids appointments, my calendar, and the rest of the beat.
This painting was inspired by the classic geometrical problem of squaring the circle. “Squaring the circle” served as a good personal metaphor, since I was grappling with what I thought were insurmountable challenges. After I created this piece the tides shifted, and that tale has now been told out, but I do remember what a delight this was to paint.
