About

The size on the wall is 20" (h) x 16" (w)

Artist Statement: The process for the works here is similar. The title comes from the Latin extemporalis, meaning on the spur of the moment, or less literally, unrehearsed. When I go to my studio, before working on more extended paintings, I “warm up” by doing one or more complete improvised works. I keep a collection of images that I find interesting for a variety of reasons, and from these I select one or two intuitively in a very limited time, usually a minute or less. Sometimes I use single images, other times two, responding to associations the pairings create. Then I begin painting without pre-drawing or conscious thought. Colors are selected spontaneously. As I paint I respond to the work in progress making changes as needed, allowing the painting to develop organically.
