The goal is to surprise myself. If I am not surprised, intrigued or interested then neither will be the viewer. It takes alot for art to whisper loudly. I also struggle with periods of non-productivity, thus I have incorporated random drawing methods and chance decision making into my practice to get projects started in new and unexpected ways.    MEC
