Two Paintings

Fall Cottonwoods with pond 9 x 16 Oil/Panel
Meandering River ii 9 x 16 Oil/Panel
Here are a couple of new paintings which I managed to finish in between all the other stuff!  I had my first tutorial and lecture last week.   It was certainly stimulating and it is going to stretch my brain somewhat, which is great.  I found the tutorial really helpful with lots of discussion about risk, unlearning and dismantling oneself!  Lots of book suggestions, so I don't think I shall be reading many novels for a while!  I am not sure what I think about Post Modernism though... any thoughts?

Ha Ha! I had to think about your reply for a moment!!! Honestly, I spent the whole afternoon listening to a lecture and came out wondering if I should have understood what it was about... I think I will enquire this week!

I have enjoyed some of the post modernism pieces. I made a rule a long time ago to always try and find some part of a painting to matter how small a part. This has expanded my appreciation of the different growth stages painting has gone through, especially in the last 200 years.
Your blog is always stimulating and I look foward to it.

Thanks Julie... you are right, I am loving finding out more and more and learning new words... new to me at least! It's easy to lose track of the world around you isn't it when ensconced alone in your studio?!!

Glad you enjoy my blog ;-)
