FAIRY TALE UNDERGOING MAJOR OVERHAUL

Hello Dear Followers, happy to report that my fairy tale –“Once Upon a Sky-Blue Tine”, that may have this image somewhere in it:

 –is undergoing a major overhaul so that it may be the best work I’ve ever produced! –must take care to re-write it perfectly! –means that much to me, a risk-it-all  sort of book, an emerging from my usual writing to produce something uniquely me right now! –revealing that “at the center of my being, I have an answer, I know who I am, and I know what I want” –hence the revision, until I get it right, for who I am, and what I want.

Some details about the painting I stand in front of:

From the Art Institute website:

Throughout his career, Gerhard Richter has alternated between figuration and abstraction, maintaining his characteristic emotional reserve and consummate skill in both modes. The aesthetic territory that he explored in his Photo Paintings of the mid- and late 1960s tended to the assertively mundane. Most of these canvases reproduce apparently ordinary images. In this context, Woman Descending a Staircase is exceptional, distinguished by the elegance of the subject, the formality and drama of the composition, and even the work’s glossy, silver-blue brushwork. This may be Richter’s most glamorous painting. These qualities encourage speculation about the woman’s identity, which remains unknown. Woman Descending the Staircase is not, however, a celebrity portrait. More typological than individual, the work addresses the way photography and painting create impressions of beauty, elegance, and glamour.

Agent-Less!

 

Still can’t believe what has happened, right when I’m on the verge of having a book that finally could be marketable –don’t I hope! –have to dream…  (especially when making a Fairy Tale

–have to deal with this development….

Anyway, my former agent dropped me! –so I do need, or rather I want, another one, and if you have an suggestions –as to who I might “solicit” (if that’s the right word), please let me know… an I was getting so ready for “Once Upon a Tine”

Rewriting underway! Re-visioning underway!

 

 

My  fairy tale now has a new tittle: “Once Upon A Sky-Blue Tine” (related to limited fork theory) and possibly a subtitle: “a nursing home survival guide” —since there are two old people [over 60] holed up in a hotel having wild and passionate sex –sounds like a fairy tale doesn’t it? –and the Dream Baby woman has MS –not the usual Hollywood stuff at all!

So keep forking! as will I on Facebook as “Forker Gryle
