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.

I don’t want to have anything to say, it just gets in the way. I think the journey of an artist is a journey of discovery and some engagements with paint, with the nature of material, with bodily things…One wants to open the story, not close it.

  • I love the way you dealt with paint in this one. For some reason, my eye gets attracted to this thing in the left bottom corner, as though it is the figure of the artist who wonders at her painting…It is interfering, in a sense. But it is also essential; it adds something like an intrigue to the piece.
