Petits Fours 1

Petits Fours 1 implies that there will be a 2. And there will be. Closer to figure gesture, this one has an intense looseness that I enjoy. Quickly get the bones in place, then distinguish one from another. They seem happy and carefree. Like debutantes before making a bow. Or dancers backstage. It is hard to put into words the feeling of process, good process. Some call it in the zone,or chi. It is amazing alignment. One's sense and sensibilities taking action. And all over a couple of eclairs, a choux pastry and a lemon tart. What makes an artist tick, is the pleasure of spending time there. It isn't exactly an altered state, but a more alive state. And I got to eat one of the eclairs. Not bad. Not bad at all.
