On Being Fearless . . .


......and channeling Gerhard Richter.

I watched a documentary on him recently and have not been able to get his abstracts out of my mind.  I lie awake at night thinking about them!  I wanted to try painting one, using the things I had on hand.  I had this 3 foot by 4 foot canvas I picked up at a thrift store, with a hideous graphic on it.  I had several bits of old house paint left in the utility room by the former owners of our house.  I had some big and old paint brushes and an easel and a drop cloth.  This was the most wonderful experience i have had in a very long time!  I need to do this again..........

Joy in the Studio ...

 My sister from Louisiana has been visiting and in my studio for the past two weeks.  It has been so wonderful!  She is a terrific fiber artist and we have spent long, long hours together creating amazing pieces.  I think if we had a month together, we could FILL a large gallery with our work.  I will miss her when she goes home.  Here are some random shots of the studio and SOME of the pieces that have result.
