To carry on the work of self-unfolding is what is all important. You have no need to finish anything unless it serves this purpose.

All these unfinished paintings show that whatever is being born is in no hurry. These durations in which paintings wait, incomplete, sink into the canvases and become transparent layers of history themselves, like windows that reveal mysterious depths within the other colors. Is anything ever really sure when it’s born? For birth is always continuing to happen. Now the outside petals are completely unfolded, but the inner ones still sleep, and are just now beginning to reach outward. And when they have all awakened, the center will be revealed.
The artist enters and looks around, deciding which canvas to take up. Or maybe he will begin a new one.
