Sepia. We watched Julian Schnabel’s film “At Eternity’s Gate”, which sent me searching for my books on Van Gogh. The film is like stepping into a Van Gogh painting. And it reminded me of how much I loved seeing the brown ink and reed pen drawings he did in Arles, when I first encountered them. I think those drawings went into my unconscious in a way I only now realize. They became a vision and a thought about a way I could make things. It tells me to always remember that everything is absorbed and eventually recycled in fresh ways. I’m so influenced by everything around me , and I’ve learned that this is natural, and something to which I must surrender.

This painting is finished. In the end I stretched it rather than leave it on unstretched canvas. The idea was good and it allowed me a freedom to add patches of cotton, canvas, collage and drawing in a way I had not done before. But the work seemed less respected than I wanted it to be, less honored without a stretcher. I’m content with it now and glad I saw it all the way to the end of it’s demands of me. It’s 57x48.

Here’s the painting I’ve been struggling with. I think it’s finished now. I’m still always surprised by how demanding making a painting is. The process is one where I fight the urge to leave it at “good enough”. At a certain point in a work I decide that I like certain elements, and so I lose complete freedom. This is where I want to say “good enough” and be done with it before I “ruin” it. But the painting will not let me settle for “good enough”! That’s a very good thing because the painting makes me risk and therefore learn. And what is the point of ever settling? I make art to explore and test and find out things, not to produce a product. It always makes me smile an ironic smile when someone says I must be having so much fun! Fun is not the word, although it can be. It’s more accurate to say I feel a sense of wholeness when I go all the way through to the end with a painting.

40x48, mixed media, collage on linen and rice paper on stretched canvas. It might be finished. I’ll live with it awhile in quiet conversation.

Let’s pretend its Thursday so I can show you this painting from about 5 years ago. Mostly because I’m taking a day off to do house things so I don’t have anything else to show you!😉

This work is for collage into a large painting. Getting lost in drawing is my favorite meditation. I love it because you must stay very present but you can’t focus too much on outcome. The definition of “flow” is to engage in something that is challenging, but not so much that it undermines your sense of competence.

The desire for color overtook me. I’ve always considered pink a powerful color, and use it often as a neutral. That sounds odd but I don’t think of it as sweet or gentle. I use pink when I want to express something about unconventional identity or rebellion against stereotypes. Or just to put layer upon layer of color on a support for the pure joy of it. .

I opened a new large watercolor moleskine sketchbook this morning. I always have to just dive in and try to “wreck” the first page so that it’s not precious anymore. .

Here is just a sampling of some of the beautiful art by @lariwashburn which I was so pleased to get to see in person at her Brunswick, Maine studio this week. Such a joy to meet and talk with Lari and I loved seeing her gorgeous, intriguing work! I could have spent hours pouring over her sketchbooks and talking with her about processes. #contemporaryart #lariwashburn #lariwashburnpaintings #lariwashburnsketchbooks #lariwashburnceramics #lovemaine #artiststudio #grateful #texture #layers

Layers interest me. This drawing has layers of textile paint, matte medium, gouache, watercolor, pastel and ink. Probably more that I’ve forgotten. The most fun I have in the studio is just experimenting without caring what the outcome is. I just follow that little voice. .

Sketchbook. More inspiration from traveling to and from the studio. It’s never a direct translation for me. It’s seeing the way light plays across the natural world that moves me. It’s details that seem so trivial that move me...a line, a shape, a reflection. I was watching the artist Jeri Ledbetter on YouTube, and she says wherever she is she finds one square foot of that environment that she loves. I imagine she conceives of that square as a painting. I see that way too. Always seeing something that seems hallowed for some reason. Maybe everything is.

The big sketchbook. I opened up a new Moleskine only to find that it has buff paper rather than white. Not my preference but I’ll be working with it anyway. .

TBT. This poured acrylic painting is on a cradled wood panel. It has so many layers of poured paint that you can feel a distinct weight to it. With most of my poured paintings I leave them white, but this one has a wash of paint and ink and graphite drawing also. .

when I met #lariwashburn, I was blown away by the prolific visual daily journals that she keeps. drawings, sketches and small paintings that are expressions of her daily observations and moods. I love these journals as they cut through the clutter, noise and over-stimulation that we are bombarded with daily. I hope to have more of her small works-on-paper in store this season. in the interim we love how her drawings are translated to this ceramic platter.

I think those drawings went into my unconscious in a way I only now realize. They became a vision and a thought about a way I could make things. It tells me to always remember that everything is absorbed and eventually recycled in fresh ways. I’m so influenced by everything around me , and I’ve learned that this is natural, and something to which I must surrender.
