Often, before starting a painting, I enjoy surprising myself by choosing a new point of departure. It is my way of keeping my work alive. I provoke novelty until I feel like I am doing something I haven't tried before. For this painting, I started with a color background inspired by the abstract expressionism movement, keeping in mind that my little girls would be wearing red, yellow, and orange dresses.
