I had been in LA studying acting and hadn't been painting at all. On a visit back to my studio in Austin, I put a 4'x4' canvas on the floor and went into a kind of meditative state, waiting patiently until something moved me to make a few strokes. It was done in an hour. For a long time I didn't know what to think of it because it was a departure from previous work. I think the theatre work helped the painting process, but I don't know how or why.
