I know I want this to be one of my triangle based paintings. Here I am trying to decide how I want to orient the triangle. That’s a piece of paper I am holding in front of the canvas that enables me to better visualize various alignments.

Sometimes I know before I start a painting what it will look like, and sometimes – like here – it evolves before me as if it were emerging from a fog in my awareness. I can see clearly where my next step is and perhaps a few few steps on ahead. But beyond that I can’t see yet, but I know when I get there I’ll see the path ahead for a few steps more.
