Recently, I've found myself only interested in creating things that happen by mistake. It's very "listen to the sound of one hand clapping" because I can want it, and want it desperately, but I can't make it happen. Woman Dancing(with Purple) was formed when I pulled the tape off of the hard edged line I was trying to make. The paint on top came up in a big chunk, revealing the purple and black painting underneath. Revealed, it was, of course, the body of the purple woman.
