Painting Light

These paintings were done lightly. In a state of meditative play, I started with random hand-painting, examined the result to find inspiration for the image, and then created the painting, usually in one session.

At one point, I taught several "play-shops" both in Russia and in the U.S. People were invited to play with paints, letting go of any expectation that they held for themselves. Not only were the resulting paintings frequently extraordinary, but some sort of alchemy always occurred in the group, and the painters were transformed and energized. It was huge fun!

The paintings below are a few of my own results. For group results, see the Flash slide show
