my ideas come in a variety of ways-

through dreams-

free association- autobiographic elements - etc.

specifically with free association and autobiographic elements- I will often begin a new piece by going through an enormous amount of images (pictures I have taken usually work best- but I do also use other imagery by permission). The images that stand out to me- do so for a I'll usually take a few days asking myself why they captured me- and it  usually refers to some  aspect of my psyche that God and I are trying to come to terms with.

on this page will attempt to blog about how i get ideas- then how i decide which ideas are worth the time to invest into a painting- and a bit about the process of how i develop my ideas-
