Always the recipe for failure is to define by detail. It is an obtuse thinking that the act of painting requires. Here I seek as much courage as I can to muster in order to choose, mix and apply paint as my heart dictates. Often a series of 'tries' or experiments are the methods I employ, my removal of attempts feed my understanding more than my successes. At a certain point I sense the session is over, there is nothing more, time to put aside for awhile.
