I have painted three times since the beginning of the year with an abstract painter friend Donna Bruni, who has a wonderful studio 2 floors above my space in the California Building. It’s been so much fun to “get out of my head” and normal way of working and try something out on the edge (for me, anyway!) Thick Paint. Palette knife action. And a conscious effort to think of working in a series. I know, it shouldn’t be such a new thing, but it shows me all the little “ruts” I have fallen into. Does that sound familiar? SO, New Year, some new ideas!
