I continue to get further away from the usual painter's tools such as easel, palette, brushes, etc.
Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was.
New needs need new techniques. And the modern artists have found new ways and new means of making their statements... the modern painter cannot express this age, the airplane, the atom bomb, the radio, in the old forms of the Renaissance or of any other past culture.
I don't work from drawings. I don't make sketches and drawings and color sketches into a final painting.
I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.
