In a little explosion of creativity, over the past few weeks I’ve learned to combine the circle grids and the bar/stripe grids in the paintings. something I thought I’d never do.  This takes the work a little farther from the monochrome minimalist look and into richer, more complex territory.  What factors led to these changes are mostly mysterious to me, but I did find myself listening to Schubert instead of  Reich in the studio.   Some “old-fashioned” sense of composing calls to me now that wants more than repetition – maybe even a start, middle and finish to the visual experience.

Gold Light River, at 42 x 41,” is one of the smaller paintings in this series so far.  I’m particularly excited about some tall vertical paintings that will soon be making their appearance on the blog.  These paintings challenge my notions and rules of what is allowed into my art.  It’s a good stretch that strengthens my thinking and intuition and lets even more light into the work.
