Exhuberance – Abstract Daily Painting 6″ x 6″


When I start a painting, typically it’s with no preconceived ideas. I just start making marks, and see where that takes me.

(FYI, this is not my “native” way of working. Well, perhaps it was when I was 4, but as an adult, my work has mostly been very meticulously designed and executed, with the goal of manifesting a Platonic Ideal on the paper or canvas. Working improvisationally is my antidote to the perfectionist paralysis that my previous way of working had me trapped in!)

After I shared this image on Instagram, I asked people for title suggestions, and it was really amusing to discover what people saw in it.

A lot of people saw a hand-waving clown or a funny face. My favorite interpretation, though, was from Alison, who saw a little child in a onesy, crawling off the frame, leaving a trail of… ??? in her or his wake.
