When I start a painting, I scrub on several washes to build a base to paint on.
With my glasses off, a suggestion of something from the dark side appears in the rough scrub coats
and I merely elaborate what the various strokes and swirls suggest.

Many thanks to RMK for the subtle awakening and very well chosen words.

The following 5 B&W pieces
were painted 10/2010, during
a slightly interesting time.
