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..........
