Reviewing Past Work

In preparation for a presentation to Watercolor West on Saturday October 25th, I have been going through my past work and have found the process so enlightening that I recommend it to everyone. For one thing it is like visiting old, cherished friends with whom you can easily pick up where you left off. I am transported to past moments of intensity and happiness as I painted them. I am able to see them for what they are more objectively and, as in the case of family members,  the passing of time has enabled me to more easily forgive their shortcomings. I can also trace the artistic journey I have taken, shaped by opportunities to learn from admired artists I chanced across, exciting discoveries in art books and museum shows,and thegrowth of my own aesthetics. I intend to share the results of this trip down memory lane as the subject of my presentation on Saturday. i invite you to join me.

  1. Manzanar 2010 was a fantastic and fitting tribute both to art and to our dear Henry. I think we had more new people this year than in several years past, and from many, many places. It was soul soothing to feel so at one with so many artists, all with some part of themselves to contribute. Looking forward to 2011 and more of the same.
