Arbitrary Artwork

Here another piece that I did today. What I’m loving about this new-ish style is that it’s so much more arbitrary. The word arbitrary is just the perfect word for this. It means: based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system.

And that’s exactly how I tackle this style. Rather than approaching a painting with a set plan (bouquet of pink roses, pattern of evenly dispersed blooms, etc), this style forces me to just go with the flow and do whatever feels natural. Sometimes that means splatters. Sometimes that means random, meaningless strokes for the sake of the composition. It’s fun and playful and very freeing.
