Janet Explains Her Process to You
I get images in my head-often when listening to music. The music seems to create an environment for my mind to relax and think its thoughts in. Then an image pops into my head. It's not a completely formed image. I don't want it to be. I want something spontaneous to happen when I start to draw or paint. Then, after losing and getting back the drawing many times, developing the space, I can re-capture the image that was in my head in the first place. I'm not completely an expressionist. There's objectivity and logic and subjectivity in the space I create, and some realism in the image, usually a head. So I'm not entirely self-indulgent and personal!
