"Paint as you like and die happy." - Henry Miller
Okay, Henry. I will.

I have an obsession with drawing leaves and creating my own types of flora dangling from space.  Where there is a clean white area of paper in my view (and reality isn't particularly engaging) clusters of leaves show up.  Flowers with fangs.  Escape ladders. When I let my mind play while creating, improvisation ensues and the result is either aesthetically interesting or a terrible mess.  My conscious mind wants control but I always toss together elements formally separate just to see what happens.  I am embracing this today, tomorrow, from now on!  Judgement does not live in the basement!  Just lots of paint and jewelry.
