(no subject)

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.
