came across this... "edvard munch was known to leave his paintings out in the rain on occasion, a habit he explained by saying, "it will either kill them or cure them"." maybe seen as anti-aesthetic but in my own explorations and observations of the world, the broken down and withered has a vulnerable beauty impossible to reproduce by any other method.

I was outside laying down some colour and the rain started to come down.  This is what is going to essentially paint this painting, this being the rain water.  I had to let go, wanting to direct and play around, I needed to lay out small areas of colour and let that something else take over.  A playful game or a game of chance or maybe it isn't a game at all but just that the painting is involved in become itself more than I used to think it did.  Leaving the unknown and unpredictable to dictate what happens next, what happens when I see it, I don't even think that subjectivity is being considered at this point but rather it will come with the paintings.
