"Serendipity" 30"x 43.5" cement & pigment on panel
It never ceases to amaze me how best laid plains never seem to work out, but if you are open to them, "happy accidents" can really generate exciting new directions in your work. If you show up and do the work and are prepared to learn, you will. This piece did not go as planned. At first I was surprised and disappointed. I won't bore you with details about technique, but suffice it to say, the result was something I could not have planned or foreseen. I believe that the evolution of my work is mainly the result of many of these serendipitous occurrences compounded over time. My advice, keep accurate notes.
