A very early version (about 2003) of this evolving method I call compulsive-obsessive (COD). It can start with very basic shapes on the canvas that have no thought behind where they go or why. Then I just start filling in the spaces between them...and start to look for some natural pattern. Eventually I have an idea that I build a lot of details around. The idea here is a seed in the red where the life is forming----a fragile beginning that can be influenced for the better or worse by all sorts of forces from the outside. If it can protect itself, eventually a sprout breaks through to the world.
