While painting "Threshold" a series of puzzles appeared. The shape and not shape, what was there and then not there but still burned through the color, led to the horizontal divisions. It was perhaps one of the more unconscious pieces in the last year; even the calligraphic markings, put in as scribbles but which came to have their own necessary place burned back through the layers. I love this painting best in the morning light when it literally glows but also love to watch it change with the day.
