I began this painting, as I usually do, with a letter to the universe. "Dear Universe..."
Questions, feelings, thoughts, quotes... all dumped onto the canvas. Then, I layered wild color and movement on top of those ponderings.
This painting stopped at step 2, because the storm felt perfectly real, and right.
"The principles of true art is not to portray, but to evoke."
