There's a freedom in painting an abstract picture, at least for me. I begin with a feeling and put brush to canvas or pen to paper. It seems I have done this my whole life, at first on scraps of paper, then using paint. There are no rules. I simply paint what I feel, not knowing from the first brush stroke to the last how it will turn out, if it will be appealing to the eye or what a person might see in it. Really, I just do it for myself. I don't have to worry about realism, or perspective. It is what it is. It comes from inside, releasing something from some unknown place. That's the joy of abstract.
