The primary reason that I am an abstract painter is that I like the suspense of not knowing how a painting will resolve itself. The creative process reminds me of having the urge to travel to somewhere new, the inevitable problem solving along the way and finally, the realization that the destination was not anything like the one you had envisioned. I usually don’t know what the experience has meant to me until some time afterwards, and I like that too.
Wondering where I’ll travel next - that’s what keeps me painting.
