I start my painting process with every intention to make some kind of ridiculous mess. I do my best to give no consideration about how it will turn out, mainly because I can't care. What I mean by that is if I care too much about the outcome, then I can't follow the paintings lead and I'd have to do it my way. I won't remain in that space of responding and creating and I lose being shown how to coax the painting into becoming what it is.
Once a painting is complete, then I care about it a lot. Paintings are important and become the body of work that should survive over time. My paintings are not simply depictions of things. They are a record of my visual language in response to what is seen and felt, guided by a poetic sensibility.
