Some paintings are HARD WORK. They seemingly just will not show themselves and evolve into something I am satisfied with. This is one such painting, but I'm done with it-- time to move on.

Absent but not idle . . .

It's been too long since my last post, but my time away has been well spent.

Two month ago I completed Karen Rosasco's 5-day Workshop in Waynesboro, VA. I owe Karen a debt of gratitude for all she taught me over the course of her instruction. She saw my struggle and my need for more information and a clear process. She knew she could help me and she did.

I've been very busy since, more confident, more productive, and finding abstract painting easier and more satisfying. I have learned that I do need "a process" for what I'm trying to do.

I'll finish today's post with pictures--selected work I've completed over the last two months.
