This is a drawing that I did over a month ago. I plan to turn it into a painting but I was so intrigued by the automatic process of recent paintings that I wanted to continue along those lines rather than work with a predetermined image. I drew this after seeing a friends facebook profile picture in which she was holding an tiger cub. I have recurrent dreams about meeting wild animals. There is always some trepidation. The animal is unpredictable, dangerous – it’s wild! Then I either fight it off, avoid it, or get over my fear and make friends with it. When we make friends, I always wake feeling that I must be in a good psychological space.
