Weekend Getaway for Painting


Athens, Texas is a real sanctuary for me. Friends I have known more than twenty years offer me hospitality, and when holidays arrive, their home fills with a large multitude of warm, loving relatives and friends. Many of us like to make art, so that even makes it better.

I have taken advantage of this retreat to experiment with different background color combinations and effects with salting and spritzing, and even spattering with a toothbrush. I’ve just masqued a new one this morning,  and am reading Motherwell in the shade of this lakeside porch while waiting for it to dry.

Thanks for reading.
