One great thing I love about Mitchell's work: the creation of markings that may seem loose and derived of chance and happenstance, but on closer viewing reveals their assuredness and intention. Areas that are smudgy and partially obscured (also intentional) often receive a new set of bold, colorful marks. The result for me is a sort of gestural palimpsest that has dimension and vibrancy.
