Do you find that abstracts are creations consisting of thrown paint, random childish action done without much thought? Actually at times that might be true, but there are serious artists who create from emotion, from a level of consciousness.

This painting was a long process only because I have discovered that something has to occur at a deep level to know that I have reached completion. Different tools are sometimes used to find that connection even in ways I would never expect. In this painting for example, I suddenly used the pouring method of Jackson Pollock.

I like a level of control and really enjoy the surprises which occur from using the rotary sander to expose what’s below. Coming up though I will experiment even further with different surfaces and gels to make the paint create it’s own abstract for me to use as a background.
