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?

beginnning backgrounds
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.
