more new paintings and a noteworthy blog
Here are the other two of four paintings that I drove up to Circa Gallery
in Minneapolis yesterday (see previous post for the other two.) Both of these were inspired by my recent trip to Lake Superior, at least in their final stages of composition (some of the individual panels have been in the works for a long time.) The top one is titled Sea Cave
(50" x 30") and the other Cairn
is named for the carefully balanced piles of rocks that are seen everywhere, in people's yards and along the beach. (I've seen such piles in many other places, too--including most recently the area near Abiquiu, NM known as the White Places.) I have attempted to make a Cairn of my own in the garden, without much success...
Speaking of New Mexico, my Santa Fe friend Diane McGregor has been writing about her work, and about abstraction and painting in general on her blog Working Space.
. Her entries are thought provoking and deeply considered, and definitely worth a read.
