They are just there, with
no requirement to understand them.
I believe there is also no requirement
to explain them...
and some are almost impossible to explain.
Why am I telling you this?
This is not a deliberate plan to confuse you.
It’s just the way I am,
and the way I want to work.
I like to be free to make my art.
Free to change my plan or process.
Even thinking too much about my
painting process can be stifling.
The word ‘process’ gives an impression that there
is a certain order or procedure to be followed.
A regular procedure could feel restrictive
and might limit my freedom.
It may also prevent my work from
growing or developing.
The word ’intuitive’ might best
describe my mark making.
A picture paints a thousand words...
When I stand in front of this painting,
my immediate response is simply
to wrap it around me.
I do not wish to translate the scribbles,
or understand the scratches.
The painting just ‘is’.
‘Red with scribbles’.
Oils and cold wax medium on 36 x 24 inch board.
Made in my studio on top of a previous picture.
A thousand words, and a gift from me to you.
Until next time...
Thank you for visiting.
