Brush strokes are sometimes guided by intellect, for example to methodically carry out a preconceived plan; sometimes, the intellect comes to bear by deciding subsequent brush strokes based on previous ones. Today’s experiment was not based on thinking. The marks I made came from emotions. The blue layer, the first one, resulted from the strongest emotion: quick, staccato poking actions. I was more calm each subsequent layer. I did choose harmonious colors for each layer, so this piece was not the sole product of feelings.
