My new series, Spontaneous Combustion, is a journey into Lyrical Expressionism. I am discovering all sorts of new things about both me and my medium, Scratchboard. Every time I make a mark it leads to another mark. And while I don't plan any of my art, at least I have a basic idea of what the form of a flower looks like. In this instance, it is a complete leap of faith. Layers of shapes and patterns spill across the boards creating a rhythm that appears to inhale and exhale.
