New Moon and Palm Trees by Sharon Ellis

On our way out, we almost missed a small show by emerging Chinese painter Song Kun, who filled a small gallery with 97 daily paintings of her life…fabulous! Her work ranges from part drawn, part painted canvases to fully realized and very well-done representational works to a number of blank canvases. At first, I took one quick pass through the gallery, intending that to be it; then went back and looked at each painting more closely, then went back again, by this time fully drawn into her mesmerizing paintings. This was my favorite art of all that I’ve seen on this coastal trip!

Yeah, I just have this one palette knife. I like how it feels. I get frustrated because I lose it a lot in the studio and I can’t do anything without it. If I’ve lost it, I can’t paint because I need to mix up colors. I hate that! Then I hate the palette knife! [laughs] But then I find it and I love it again. [laughs] — Dana Schutz

  • Perfect lineal balance, Marilyn. I can see how it is your fav. I love abstract that holds close to the primaries.
