Sometimes, when I’m in abstract mode, I use a sketch pad to ‘road test’ some of my doodles. I am sure that the smallish format (9x12inch) inhibits my arm motion. I wonder what I will come up with when I have more room. That is fun to think about.
I return to splatter mode today. I began with random splashes of green followed by splotches of dark blue. My mind wandered back to my recent visit to Burbank and Will singing ‘Old MacDonald’. I flipped my paint brush in synchrony with the ‘E-I-E-I-O’ chorus. After enlisting the help of a can of compressed air, I decided that today’s creation was beginning to look more like a cell about to divide than anything related to farming. All I had to do to complete the illusion was to add a bit of yellow about the equator and red at the poles of my imaginary cell.
I realize that not everyone will share my vision of this study. Feel free to imagine your own associations.
