"Stand Alone" (second piece)
Black sharpie, water-based oil paint on Arches 300 lb watercolor paper, framed in a white contour frame
20" x 16"
I reach toward the unknown by spontaneously drawing lines across blank water color paper with a black sharpie. This unconscious process of mark making encourages a meditative state that allows me to enter into the unseen world that surrounds everyday existence. I develop an infrastructure from which abstract figurative images emerge. I continue completion of the image with water based oil paint to defines shapes withing the drawn lines.
