How to Paint

 

Set up a surface,

whether canvas,

paper or weathered

wood doesn’t

matter, at least

not at first.

Next, squeeze

out a bright

worm of color,

or mix it up

from powder

with medium

and binder.

Invite your

thoughts to

depart, opening

to other

forces beyond

them.

Then, pick

up the brush.
