Yesterday I spent the day at the Women Painters of Washington Gallery in Seattle with artist, Kristi Galindo Dyson. She recently received a Best of Show award and, as we discussed abstract and field painting, I was surprised to find myself relating more fully than in past conversations. It made me realize how much my method of painting and my thinking has changed.
And so, today when I came across my posting dated January 28, 2008 on this blog, it made it smile because I have forgotten that feeling of only a year ago when I wrote, "I’m a big admirer of artists who start with an idea and paint it without reference photos or standing before the actual scene as they paint. However, that process doesn’t work for me."
