Art Text: Is it just me, or do you also notice that some of our most beautiful art arrives just off the edge of what we think is more important?
Statement: The Just Off the Edge image caught me by total surprise. I was creating the Underneath painting, discouraged in the process by my self-imposed, heavy expectations to make LOTS OF SPECTACULAR ART RIGHT NOW while on retreat. I took myself on a walk to relieve the angst and pressure. When I returned, the scrap of paper I’d used as a drop cloth for Underneath suddenly seemed to be even more ‘accidentally’ beautiful than my intentional efforts. The line of text came quickly to mind then, and I worked it all into a new painting. And I felt a lot better.
