I find the process from conception to manifestation difficult to explain. It's not unlike automatic writing, except that it is the intuitive image I seek as a consequence of the gesture, rather than the essence of the written word. The dialogue with the discovered image is what I find most challenging, i.e. keeping the painting in a state dictated more by the subconscious rather than a rational, disciplined procedure. I combat an inherent propensity to overdefine - to make the subject matter more obvious - which ultimately would lead to contrivance and failure.
