When I start a painting I have a "vision" of what I want to represent. As I paint the "painting " takes over the process. I always tell the workshop participants
"Let the painting paint itself"
It's relay the best way, if we listen, the painting dictates the balance.
But when I get interrupted, and go back to it, I no longer remember the initial vision so I have to work with what is already on the paper.
Original, acrylic on paper 19.5" x 25.5"
