Juanita Bellavance, Aleatoric, 2022, Acrylic on canvas, 48 x 48 inches
I think sometimes awe and wonder occurs in unexpected moments. Like with this painting there was absolutely no expectation of it turning out to be floralesque. Yet as it occurred that way no manner of manipulation could make the effect go away.
The accidental nature of the result is the awe and wonder for me. Completely outside my control. Just a vessel for it to pour through onto the canvas. What a blessed honor to get to experience such things in the midst of this world as it is.
