Painters have often talked about the moment of ‘letting go’ being an integral part of picture making.

For me, this means to jettison all expectations and desires, and in the process of each picture’s development, to allow the work to ‘chart it’s own course’ (another common refrain).

It is in this area of greater risk that painting holds its own unique excitement, and without this level of engagement I do not feel that the picture lives to justify its own existence.
