"Intention. This is a tricky thing in painting. You spend the first part of your life as an artist trying to develop it. However, once you grow up a bit, get out of school, live some life, stop talking and just do, you hopefully catch on to what your work is supposed to be.
"But soon enough you know too much. You know how you think, what you’re likely to do, and, if it’s a really bad case, you’ll even know how you’ll erase and undo. So how do you catch a break from your own intention? This is the problem for the mid-career artist. You need to figure out how to approach things in new ways, working against yourself and possibly without letting yourself know this is your plan."
