In much of my life, I am a planner. I make zillions of over-achieving to-do lists. I like to know my hotel plans have been made for shows months in advance. I like to know what my schedule is. And, while getting on some waiting lists for shows--Belleville, Cherry Creek & Old Town--means I am almost there, it reeks havoc with this planning sensibility I have. But when it comes to painting, I prefer to let the paintings make the decisions. Too much preplanning equals static art. I think. So, while the underlying substrate color dictates a few colors I will use, I prefer to work through the piece with no preconceived notions of what colors will be in use. I think the art is better for that. Do you?
