One of my favorite things about abstract art is the freedom to explore. Sometimes I just feel like “throwing paint.” Other times, I have thought long and hard about the subject matter — especially for a series — sketched ideas and planned a color palette. And sometimes I read something that gets me thinking outside of my crayon box and I just have to give it a go. Most often, my abstracts have a cohesive thought in the beginning, fall apart in the middle and, by the time they are finished, look nothing like I expected.
“Of all the art, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for color, and that you be a true poet.”
