Creation Notes:

People often ask artists where they draw their inspiration. These days mostly I just start making marks or blobs with paint or ink, and respond to those marks improvisationally. This piece, though, did have some direct inspiration: Ruth Yuhas.

Ruth came to my Create & Incubate Retreat last weekend, and her paintings just blew me away. I wanted not to copy her (impossible anyway), but to borrow her technique of starting with pure color, then adding lines in watercolor pencil after the paint dries. What fun!
