I have been having a time, trying to keep what I started with the studio in Portland, and yet returned to really traditional drawing lessons. My current teacher IS an experimental kind of painter. So I’ll get there – but is that where I wanna go? I have felt out of touch with what Mary Oliver called the “wild silky” part of me. My Portland teacher said my willingness to experiment would serve me well.
I just need to do it. I had fallen into thinking that I wasn’t doing things the way my new studio does stuff. But I don’t really know what they do or don’t do! I’m seeing some paintings – finished and in process in the new studio. I got in there (at home) and painted today. it was fun.
