"I approach painting with random intentions to give a sense of natural order.. its integral to my process, as well as my intentions. I attempt to find meaning through separating myself from my thoughts and then following them through with my actions. I generally work on 5 to 10 paintings at all times so I can jump between them all, and stay busy. I try not to get too caught up with any one piece until it nears its end. I feel this keeps my self editing more honest, it keeps me from getting too attached to one idea, and allows me to move on to follow rather than lead my thoughts. This is what I strive for more than anything in process, following what I see. I generally work on pieces in many small sessions so my assessments are new and fresh each time I sit down to work a piece. In the final stages I tend to make sense of the imagery and add any final touches. Through the process of following, I feel I work through problems as well as learn about myself by making free visual expressions and associations of my feelings. Often it isn’t until a painting is almost completely finished that I understand its meaning." Jesse Reno
