I spend months in preparation involving thinking about new series of paintings. These months are more important than actual materialization of the painting. I think about all intensity, the emotions that happen, all the spirals within, everything that might or should show up on the canvas thru the layers of colors and energetic jerks when splashing the paint, the sound of that splash, wrist move. In that process something happens that is similar to transcendence, when all intellectual side stops, when blockage is broken, and there is just a state of mind, blissfulness, mindfulness, however you wish to call it. Then it happens, then the purity of the self can be delivered on that canvas.
