big painting

I made this painting in February of this year.  Sometimes I need to make big atmospheric abstractions like this in between conceptual projects.  Thinking in a different way helps me to clear my head.  The decisions in this type of work happen through looking at the work as it evolves.  It is more about color and the properties of paint than making a great philosophical statement or addressing a social issue.  The applications of paint and layers in a work like this can be quite complex.  While I was making it, a couple curators stopped by my studio and looked at me like I was crazy.  Why are you painting?  I guess just needed to at the time.
