Consider the force of a tree root thrusting downward into dry parched earth. What a quiet but relentless force. Perhaps moving a millimetre per day. But if it is to survive, thrust it must. The abstract painting above "Roots Force" attempts to allude to this phenomenon. The small acrylic painting on paper, tries to demonstrate in plastic form, the aggressive movement of the brush in an abstract expressionistic style. In working, no real thought is given to styles or techniques, just a response to the intuition, guided by thoughts, mood, music and the colors at hand.
