Artist's description:

This large painting represents my technique of painting by instinct solely in the dark, having completed my "In the Dark" paintings.

Just like with those paintings, the canvas was prepped using black, this was the only black used. I had no idea which color I was applying or how they would interact with each other until the following morning when I first looked at it in the light.

To be honest, I've had a bit of a love/hate with this painting; often I would look at it, contemplating as to whether or not I should do more with it....Also, the composition seemed to change depending on the time of day or how the light would hit it.

However, after staring at this painting for some time, I would find inspiration or ideas for new techniques and apply those to new works. I guess in a way, this painting became a muse for me.

As with the other works painted in complete darkness, I find it ironic in a way that something bright and expressive came out of total darkness.
