Each painting is the result of pure joyful experimentation in the properties of acrylic paint in the pursuit of dynamic organic forms and color with a rich textural surface.  I prefer painting on a supine panel to accommodate dripping, splattering, puddling, scraping, and blowing, depending heavily on a space heater for drying between layers.  For the most part I eschew brushes for a variety of unusual applicators such as straws, acetate, wood slats, rags, sprayers, etc., to create "natural" effects in a controlled manner.  Each of the multilayers is laboriously rubbed before the next is applied, resulting in a crisp polished surface.
