I take out my contacts, then I paint. 
That is not a true statement but that is my interpretation of abstract painting. Having terrible vision (without correction) I see only colors, shapes and some depth. I paint in that mindset. My goal is for the viewer to feel and or see my vision without having it be a replica of the place or thing. I take great pride in imperfection.
