working out an idea
There are many roads that lead to successful abstract paintings. I have been playing with some shapes and ideas, some colors and designs to move things out of a literal place in my mind. It's like an inchworm who no longer needs to measure marigolds, don't you think?

And, it's like I think I know the song, "Inchworm," and then Patricia Barber shows me I know nothing! What do you think?

Catherine, kind off the subject for this post but I was able to go to the VanGogh interactive exhibit today in Phoenix. Pretty amazing! If it comes to your area I highly recommend it.

Sounds wonderful! I love Van Gogh, as you know.
