interpreting the abstract
This photo is courtesy of Patty Oblack
and her husband Darryl, who made it to the opening of Interpreting the Abstract, a group show that included her work and mine, at Wilde Meyer Gallery
's Tucson location on Thursday night. Shown here is my small multiple panel painting, Deep Blue
(24"x18" oil on panel, 2007.) A glimpse of Patty's painting is seen to the left.
Though I went back and forth about going to the opening myself, in the end I was satisfied with getting reports from Patty and from my son who happened to be in Tucson at the time. "Crazy-busy" time is still here, or never went away. Last night I calculated that I need to finish at least a painting a week between now and late June in order to meet current obligations. To avoid becoming overwhelmed by this, I figure I have to just take one day at a time. Plus I'm thinking one day a week of No Painting...including No Thinking About Painting...is in order. I had one of those yesterday and it was truly refreshing.
