This painting was done in a single session lasting about 7 hours. It was created using the method of the Abstract Expressionist action painters whereby I approached the blank canvas with no preconceived notions about what it would look like and allowed the painting to emerge from my unconscious, employing an inner aesthetic. I worked spontaneously, moving in and out with various media to fill spaces, change colors, and shapes, applying paint with brushes or my hands, carving symbols with the end of the brush. I had started making educational documentaries about that time and was involved in creating a three-part series on the history of psychology, just completing part two about Jung and Freud, founders of the psychoanalytic technique of talking therapy. Little did I know a decade later I would be completing my PhD in psychology. My wife filmed me doing the painting and a video can be seen at this link: https://vimeo.com/338445619
