I work intuitively and turn my brain off completely when I paint, so even if something appears on the canvas that actually looks like something, e.g. a face, then it is not my intention that it is there.
Many of my paintings I start up in darkness where I have no idea how the colors choose to blend. Often I can hardly wait to turn on the light and then work the details in place until I feel the painting is done.
I paint with acrylic and use a bit of mica in most of my pictures, as it gives my paintings both depth and extra life when the light captures the mica's surfaces ... It gives an extra dimension, and the painting changes expression according to the light in the room and from which angle one observes the painting.
I do not name my paintings, to let viewer imagination rule by its own... If I had named the painting on the left "Pink Cat"... you would try and find the cat and maybe not see the wise old lady. ;-)
Generally I only sign my paintings on the back so you can turn your new painting as you like. Being able to flip the painting can give you a new universe to explore. Almost like having 4 paintings in one. I gladly sign the front for you, if one day you decide that it should hang a certain way.
