I started 3 more small sketches for watercolor paintings in the last day or two, erased one of them, ignored the second and painted only this one.  This didn’t turn out quite the way I envisioned, but I like it anyway, and it is inspiring a new set of oil paintings that I hope will be rather successful, but we’ll all have to wait and see on that.  🙂

If I stay long enough in the studio, just stay with the work even if it doesn’t feel great or seem satisfying or directional or conclusive, if I just stay to tend and garden, then my mind gradually yields control to the more automatic labor of painting, and with that comes a sweet spot in the process further down, a worn groove, a sense of ease.

  • Wonderful piece, Marilyn. That figurine is exquisitely done — love it. I find it very interesting hearing how you transitioned from traditional painting to abstract.
