I started doing these color daub abstracts after some fitful portraits when I realized I liked the composition on my wiping rag better than what was on the canvas... I thought whoa, I can MAKE THIS THE CANVAS.
It's so fun and so freeing to work with straight color in an unstructured composition. It's almost like a musical composition: the notes have to harmonize, there has to be lots of space, and the drama has to come at just the right moment.
