As I layer paint, I think about “chunking,” as in, breaking light and color into chunks. This is a way of showing movement through things–like the way a branch moves through a shrub or tree foliage. It’s not a continuous line but a broken one because it gets overlapped and obscured by greenery.

The longer I paint, the more the paint itself and my marks and gestures are becoming the players in the composition. I want these elements to draw the eye the way figures in a landscape would. This is the beginnings of abstraction.
