There was a
time when I created works that would look great over someone's
sofa--florals, seascapes, etc.
Now I want to
make something that is unexpected and exciting--BLAM!--a surprise,
even for me. The piece may begin this way and end up that way, in a
totally different direction, perhaps upside down or sideways.
I begin with
enthusiastic thrusts of acrylic paint. Then I may paste on a stray
piece of collage paper that is lurking at the bottom of the heap.
With that, more papers, fabric, string, the kitchen sink--who knows?
isn't fun, why do it?
