To get a full objectivity, to have an entirely new view of a particular work, to study its expressiveness and see if the color elements are as sharp as I want them . . . looking at work upside down often provides the final happy surprise. —
My little poppy paintings were hung in a great location in the front room, all together -- I loved how they looked there. There were a lot of nice paintings in the gallery -- some darling little happy flower paintings also in the front room -- in acrylic with wood-burning, if I remember right, lots of nicely done representational pieces -- landscapes and still lifes -- a few lovely abstracts, and some gorgeous photos here and there.
