One of my favorite movies is "Angel of Desire", an older movie about angels walking around on earth, looking and acting like regular people - reading books, falling in love... This painting, intuitively painted started out as layers of color smeared over the board by hand. I added random lines and marks until I saw the main image start to emerge. As I started filling in the negative space, I saw his wings and the whole painting then started taking shape. I used a rotary sander on it to take off some of the layers, and it left with with a smooth surface. One of the things I really like about it is the "messiness" of it. I like the dynamism of it.
