Energy is the life force that is present in all good art. This is not something that is easily defined, but it is the opposite state of static flatness. It is this energy that makes a painting speak to you, and makes an artist's work original and identifiable as the work of that artist. Energy is created out of the artist's materials and tools, but the end is more than the means in the same sense that a musical composition is so much more than a collection of notes.
Often artists who are used to drawing and painting what they see around them have trouble figuring out how to begin making non-representational abstract art. Should they plan what to paint in their heads first? Make a small sketch of the design? Or just plunge in? If so, how?
There is no single way to approach the project, but I often paint a "background" first so that there is something for me to work against or with. The background consists of blending some colors together, so all I need to know is the basic color palette I will use. And during the course of the painting process, this color scheme could change entirely.
I never know how a painting will turn out when I begin. Rather than having a concept or design in my head, I like to let the image emerge from the painting process.
