it’s in the doing, it’s not about the applause.

‘Gathering Evidence’ as a title for my up coming show came easy for me. Being a visitor to another country this past Fall in Italy and France was such an amazing opportunity to do just that; gather. Whether on a train, catching a taxi or sitting in a wonderful cafe, one gathers and absorbs; enjoying a keen awareness of the magic around you.

This experience is so valuable and yes, comes back ‘tenfold‘ to you in studio. Perhaps my show expresses this magic in bold ways, some subtle and personal too.

I was there and I remember.

an award

Winning an award with the Alaska Watercolor Society recently is a great honor.

The best is that I send the ‘best of the best’; that which is from the heart.  This work of art, adagio, has an authenticity that I felt proud to exhibit.

Onward.

The joy I felt in studio yesterday and today was terrific; a process successful as I discover once again; ‘it’s in the doing.’

More discovery of color was certainly the objective but the spontaneity a monotype press can give you is surprising and freeing.

I will continue my color studies; still life next. Why aprons?

Well, I found a  beautiful and meaningful concept describing ‘women’s march’ which is happened in Seattle and worldwide.

Color is a powerful design element I am thoroughly enjoying. Check out that red!

More soon.

road trip

‘Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose’. (Charles Eames)

It was a road trip last week; arranging flowers in a painting; conceiving concept. As I worked the painting, I wasn’t too sure where I may be headed. I was ‘driving the car’ in a meandering direction; all seemed fine. Then, a wrong turn, over working concept even with subtle changes.

However, I charted my course and using my camera, I documented each step along the way. Because of my patient documentation, now I may begin again and set the vehicle on the right ‘fork in the road.’
