I recently discovered a wonderful artist that creates mixed-media pieces that don't really remind me of anything else I've seen before, which of course, stops me in my tracks. Artist Mark Pack probably explains the appeal in his own words: "Growth happens in all living things. If something grows, it is not made. To “make” a painting is to not make art, but if one lets, that painting grow, then art is made." I like growth, letting something just come rather than forcing it. Always go with your gut, that's what I say. So there. Go Mark!
