I wanted to do one more new painting before hanging the show at Austin Art Space.  I started this one with the intention of creating a 4th more geometric style work like the ones that started me off on my latest series of abstracts: “It’s Awash,” “Paradigms Lost,” and “High-Risk Pool.”  A few rectangles into the painting, and I couldn’t restrain myself any longer…I had to make this one more fluid and free.  Then, my husband brought home 4 brownies for me from a meeting with our neighborhood organic gardeners, no less.  I ate them all over the course of the evening/night, and stayed up into the wee hours to finish this piece!  Wheeee!

P.S. I will take a better picture of this soon. Until March 3, the painting is hanging at Austin Art Space on my wall for the “For Love of Art” show.

For one half of a life you work, spurred on by this expectation [for recognition]. During the second half you work to prove to yourself you can do without it, that the loss of the illusion has made no difference. Then gradually you forget altogether. You work in order to be able to die painting.
