Making a Painting is Like Raising a Child

a: Making a Painting ~
b: Raising a Child

What: "After I have prepared a canvas with gesso and possibly a colored ground, I make the first marks. Lines and colors flow onto surface. I am delighted and surprised at what appears. It is fresh and new. It is like falling in love with your new baby. Everything is a discovery, a surprise."
