This painting is still in explore stage, which means that I am taking risks, taking drastic steps, trying out ideas, am scratching, applying, subtracting while wet. Then sanding, and more layers, more sanding, scratching and so forth. I find this stage to be the most challenging of them all, when the mind must be open and quickly be responding to these changes, when I must dare to loose, to paint over what I loved, in order to achieve a more interesting expression further down the way.
