a good read. Pleased to have written this article on my precess and thinking and graciously asked by Skip Lawrence.
It is always great news when one’s art is appreciated and loved.
I will miss this one.

This week has been ‘eye-opening’, for sure. I have declared 2019 the’ year of color.’
Amazing lessons, workshops and simply working with color has been rewarding.
A new language: color with concept, approach and meaning.

The ‘what if’ and ‘then what’ were words in my head this past week at a Skip Lawrence workshop. We focused on shape, edges and color, texture; design elements, those I have been pursuing over and over in my own work and in teaching these many years.
‘Nuance and Design’ were concepts mentioned continuously in Skip’s clever ways; usually with wonderful humor and generating so much laughter.
And, of course, the infamous ‘mostly’, establishing dominance in a painting especially about in use of color, its strong emotive powers, creating connection, unity and variety.
And, how to evaluate one’s own work?
Dominant: Mostly? Enough Contrast to make shapes read? Creative, thoughtful, individual Shapes? Color Variations? Consistency to one Concept? Whew.
A terrific week. Ready to head back to Studio and ready to share these amazing lessons with my students. Stay tuned.
