It is incredible how much I can learn by reflecting on past work! I actually always considered documenting the work and classifying it as extraneous.
Now I can find correlations between work done in the past and what I am doing now. Paintings are like signs showing where I am and where I need to go. I guess it is kind of like looking at a map of time!
I guess it's kind of like looking at photographs or journals to reset your compass!
So as I do new work I am surveying the past work observing my path.
Now that midsummer is in full swing, I am loving the flexible time it gives me to paint, draw, cook and read! In a search for wheat-free recipes for one of my visiting sons, I found a Elana's Pantry with great attiTUDE and extremely creative recipes! Her cookbook is coming out next week! Can't wait!
