The Image Collector
i never start a painting with the intent of conveying any sort of message. at some point during my work on it a title will occur to me, either because of the apparent imagery in my abstraction, or a less specific impression, or sometimes a comment from someone watching the process. i am aware that attaching a name to a piece to some extent imparts a message, but i think it is important that the message was not preconceived but rather derived from the piece itself.

Please, sir! What about the time you were commissioned to paint impressions of people's LJs?

Re: Raises hand

*laughs* the commision was very broad, and only asked that i read those journals and be inspired by them. i devised the process as i went along, there was no message ever intended, and the title came to me about half way through. i was influenced by my impressions of the people and theirs of each other, but the painting wasn't about them.
