A new beginning

When I start a new piece, I don't know what it will look like when it's finished. I'm an intuitive artist; I let the work reveal itself. I know, that sounds so artsy and non-specific. What I mean is that from one choice to the next, I follow my instincts. I follow what feels right, what interests me enough to keep going. I take breaks and just look, trying to sense what comes next. And I allow accidents to happen. Like Bob Ross, I enjoy a happy little accident. I am all about wabi-sabi and finding perfection in imperfection.

So here is a look at my new drawing as it develops. It's inspired by the chrysanthemum and repetition of its petals. I'll share more as it develops!
