I was initially very unhappy with the first few layers of this painting. The colors got greenish and muddy and I didn’t see any obvious way to improve it. Then I tried to add a clean shape, which didn’t fit at all. After a final smudge of gray and some extra hazes of color the whole thing somehow clicked together and now I feel good about it. Something about the way that shape seems to stick to that sharp-edged slab of indigo led me to the title. Chaos and uncertainty have a way of pulling us to adhere to something, some kind of structure, something simple to hold on to.
