This piece is a prime example of the unpredictability in spontaneous painting. My usual process in a “geode” painting is to mix the paint directly on the canvas and eventually begin blending the colors to produce the band-like effects. With this piece, however, once I finished the initial mixing stage, I realized this is what the painting wanted to be – it didn’t want me to go any further. Even thought I’d just begun, I listened to the painting and stepped away. This piece reminded me that sometimes, the most important actions are the ones you don’t take.
