You said: Nonobjective art has no purpose except to exist in a good state of being. That is one of the clearest, cleanest, get-in-and-get-out statements about abstraction I've come across.

You also said: Your intuition tells you to let loose, then it tells you to get organized, then it tells you to do both, and then neither. That is how we navigate the Scylla and Charybdis of painting abstractly, steering between making a mess and making a doodle. Doodles are a whirlpool from which there is no exit, messes are a demon that allows no entrance.
