Abstraction has me firmly in its grip.

Beginning with various spontaneous shapes, marks, lines and textures, I add layers of color. More marks and shapes are put down. And finally I add drips and pours.

I find it fascinating to watch paint flow down canvas, mix with and change other colors already put down. I start out having a conversation with the canvas, but it soon makes its own decisions based on prior marks and layers, and seems to take on its own visceral energy. I let it happen. I work in conjunction with what the painting is wanting. I let the painting have its own life.
