I believe in an ongoing creation. All new moments and the events therein, even the thoughts, are evidence of the creation happening. When I work artistically, or any other way, I participate in that creation. I co-create with the mechanism of creation with what I like to call my heart mind hands.
Every stroke of the brush is absolutely new to the universe. It's never happened just like that before. Even if I could make the exact same mark twice, which I can't, the surrounding circumstances and environment would be different for each mark.
I don't try to plan a work too much because every work seems to take on its own life and guides me more than me guiding it. I jokingly call my genre accidentalism as so many works seem to result from happy accidents.
In the balance of intuition and craft, I have leaned towards letting it go rather than making it come.
