Developing a rigid plan for the final product of a painting has rarely been the path I’ve taken.  I am interested in what arises spontaneously, I work intuitively, and I choose my course of action by responding to what occurs randomly. If we pay attention and celebrate the random, we begin to see something new and discover what we never could have planned.

The process for making the paintings in the following series requires this balance between the random and deliberate actions and reactions.  It reveals the threshold between intention and accident, control and letting-go, planning and surprise, and the beauty that arises from this fine balance. And this, I believe, should be celebrated.
