What to do with left over paint………? I decided to use this extra paint, left over from another project, to have a little fun with mark making. Sometimes it can be fun simply to make marks and make them as fast as you can. Don’t be concerned with the final product of the piece. Just paint and then let your eye travel through the marks. Then locate all the marks that feel new. You can even use photography to frame the most interesting sections. It’s a great way to free your hands, and it can be a little like treasure hunting!

It has been years since I painted something that was completely non-representational. However I am a lover of mark-making. I enjoy experimenting and discovering the vast possibilities for making a mark. These paintings are a study of possibility. What has been made possible through experimentation.
