A friend brought me a beautiful pinecone from her vacation in Oregon. I scanned it into my computer and began to explore what I might create with it. With some digital pens and brushes I teased and cajoled and enticed the surface into a swirling, raging river. When this was a pinecone, there was no way for me to visualize the final outcome. In this case it was best to let the process unfold and be willing to go where the painting wanted to go.
