I love painting on large canvases. There is such a freedom, it’s difficult to describe, but I know that my whole body is involved in the process. I knew that I wanted this painting to be very expressive to encourage others to create, speak, and act unfettered. In order to articulate what I wanted, I actually had to restrain myself and allow the different layers of the paint to dry before I worked on it again. It was difficult and took discipline but it returned me to my theme – that we need constraints and structure to really feel freedom.
