Isn't variety the spice of life? Fantasy Garden was a refreshing flight into the freedom of spontaneous, intuitive painting. I'm beginning to understand my pattern of painting a little better now as I continue to paint these small paintings. I usually have a larger canvas I'm working on...that is a given. Then, there are my little still life paintings, most of which are fairly structured....and then....out of the blue, I get the strongest impulse to just cut free and paint whatever happens. I pick up my brush and begin to move paint around the canvas....never quite knowing what the end result will be.

Today's Quotation: "That's the artist's role - to strike out always for something new, to break away, to defy, to... grapple with the unfamiliar." -Brian Aldiss
