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.

If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open doors to you. I say follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.

  • To me this one and some of your other works are like watching little biological critters come to life as soon as the lights are turned off and the lab door is locked for the night. They come out, put the music on and start boogie dancing around the room.
