let the picture lead you

Helen Frankenthaler, December 12, 1928 – December 27, 2011

Speaking of pictorial choices, Ms. Frankenthaler said that her decision-making process was wholly unregimented. ''There is no 'always,' '' she said. ''No formula. There are no rules. Let the picture lead you where it must go.''
