I often wake up the friend who is staying on my couch with a loud bang in the wee hours of the morning; both of us are brought into a state of Zen by the completion of a painting. 

I take my goggles off and get a first look, she rubs her eyes to take a look as well….”Cool!” is the first word one of us can utter as we both examine the aftermath of color and clumps left on canvas.  

I imagine all of the possibilities for the future of Slam Painting and they are endless.​

The intensity causes a hole which I have learned to live with; piercing through leaves room to apply a paint-soaked patch to the back, adding color to the ruptured canvas.  This breakthrough highlights the aftermath in much greater dimension.

The weight of the hammer striking down creates an explosion of force which causes the paint to race outward and perform unpredictable maneuvers twisting in mid-air and skimming the surface of the canvas; like skipping pebbles on a pond.​

Sledgehammer for Painting, say hi to the "big bang"

Learning to paint with the Sledgehammer over the last few months have reminded me of Chinese brush painting lessons as a child; how difficult the Horsetail Brush was to use. I spent many hours in clumsy frustration practicing to get the perfect mark.
