When I was younger, I used to love drawing random gestural lines and then going back to find shapes created by them. I also used to color inside the shapes I created. In college, an art professor told me that my gestural lines were stronger than the lines I normally drew. One recent evening, while passing time at an art gallery reception, I started a doodle that went back to that way of working. My recent images have been so tight that I thought I should now try to loosen up again.
