Um Kulthum & Me

enter the oil pastels

In every painting I do, there is a process of conception, initial implementation (or preliminary sketch), destruction, reconstruction, destruction (this particular cycle is unpredictable. Factors may include my emotions, events which may influence the progress of the painting,  or just having a really good day and somehow clicking with my painting). Many times, the ‘completion’ of the painting catches me by surprise either in the destruction or reconstruction stage. Somehow, the work decides to complete itself. I know it sounds cuckoo but it does happen.
