"Every attempt at the easel presents an opportunity to explore new tools, materials and processes. Without a set intention, I create. There are happy accidents that begin to happen. When I take chances and challenge the unknown, things that I could not have predicted occur. I find that when I begin to play, I open the door for discovery to enter. This blog is a documentation of my ongoing process of discovery." -Lisa Cyr
