Unexpected things always happen
in the studio, but I am finding that right now I have to pay attention in a new
kind of way. I'm not sure if I can articulate what is happening but here goes.
While I often don't know where I am going with a work now it seems a more acute
listening is being asked of me. Lately I have set myself a series of exercises
or studies; to get a better feel of what paint wants to do with me holding a
brush. Why use paint, is another medium better for what I am trying to say? By
now the original intent of what I wanted to do, and why I needed to use paint, has
been left behind, and these subtle marks are emerging. You might want to click
