On Friday, B and I attended a dinner and artist talk for the opening of a new show by Stanley Whitney. Mr. Whitney referred to himself as a "process painter" -- he apparently starts with a general format in mind, and places each block of color based on "feel." He said he lays down a color and then stares at it, letting it tell him what to do next. His work is abstract, and all about balance and intuition.
