workshop and retreat Day Two

16 x 12, acrylic and gold foil on paper
What a pleasure to learn new ways to add interest and layers of meaning to a painting.

Logistically, though, it's important to keep the tacky glue on the paper and NOT on your fingers, or the gold foil will stick where you don't want it. Might say it's a Midas touch! Or, you could call it "Goldfinger." At least, I might.

I feel that you have a great handle on the "automatic" part of abstraction that I love so much. So hard to develop. I think.

Love it!

Hi Casey! I've had a great week and have learned a lot more about abstraction. I hope to share more discoveries soon! Thanks for checking in and commenting!

These are wonderful Katherine! I think abstraction is so much fun. More travel space--less rigid rules. But they can turn on you fast. What is it about that? You would think that everything would work in abstraction but it simply doesn't. Thanks for these. That Shirley Bassy voice is larger than life! I've never seen her perform before. Thanks for posting her too. Best.
