The Beginning

So most things I do start out looking like this...a mess...but to me this is the best way to start and this is usually the time when I am able to just let me mind go. I cover my blank canvas or whatever materials I am working on with paint, writing, doodles, scribbles and anything else that feels right at the time. I begin creating layers and layers of this mess and often times use my canvas as a journal. I write my thoughts and then paint over them and then write more thoughts and paint over that. Each layer is really a layer of me. I use this as my primer, my background for the actual peice of art and nobody would ever know that below the surface there is all this mess!!

DC Trip
