My Philosophy Exactly

"To try and take iron-control of a painting is to kill it at birth. Yet to let it run riot almost certainly ends in anarchy or mud. I've found that if I alternate between order and chaos, intuition and intellect, then the painting slowly reveals itself." Nick Bantock

A wonderful quotation and a very delicate balance - like walking a tightrope. Thanks, Sue!

Sue - love seeing your studio and your wonderful paintings! It's so great to see the "scale" of them - very impressive - as Linda said - you have really hit your stride! Congrats.
