‘Rising with the sun’
This is the picture before I worked on it.
Dan Harmon’s quote on the left urges us
‘I was thinking that there’s no reason to ever
participate in an art-making process unless
there’s some chance for happy accidents
and moments of serendipity’.
I love a happy accident.
This painting had the ‘happy’ treatment.
One mark of yellow changed everything.
It was pre-planned and not accidental
but it could have gone wrong.
Instead, I feel there is a new focus in the work.
The art-making process is what drives me to paint.
Taking risks and experimenting with colour.
