It is impossible to know what items are decisive when I start a painting. It's a judgement call.
I follow my gut and my intuition. Especially when I am putting color down. I try not to think about it too hard. When I do that the colors get muddled. Maybe my thinking is muddled.
There is lot going on. So many distractions pull me away. I've always been that way. I am focused but I am easily distracted.
It is tough to be distracted, though, when I light the fuse. There is so much uncertainty.
Explosions make change. I'm not kidding.
Experimentation is what makes this work fun and exciting. Hell, it make life fun and exciting. Doing the same thing everyday can quickly become boring and dull. My work is anything but boring an dull.
As an example I have been experimenting with burning my abstract photographs. Man, they burn quickly. And I am happy with the early results.
Experimenting also lets me pursue my art for the pure love of my art.
So be decisive. Light the fuse. Make a change. Love your art.
