Sky Falling into Water

Two new pieces that I have been working on since September. These two paintings have gone through many
variations, transmutations, alterations, dissolutions & integrations...now, finally, they feel fully absorbed. So
much takes place on an instinctual, nonverbal level when I paint...at one point, the brushes were interfering
with the process so I dropped them and started to paint with my hands, it felt like I had become the rocks,
water and sky...sometimes painting is like a portal into a more integrated world, an imaginary world, but somehow
more real in it's visceral body revelations.
