i start painting the backgrounds in a mad whirl of color and energy with no idea where it's all going. i cover my immediate area with inspiration; even my own to remind me of past mark making, color and imagery. does anyone else do that?
i've been painting so much lately for specific purposes-- themed shows & illustrations-- that these paintings are just for me to get back to what i love. i have 2 shows already lined up for september, so while i need to get working towards them i also want to experiment and feel back to the basics of gushy paint love that make me feel alive.
i'll keep you posted on their progress.
