A West Coast Artist's Paintings

The current Pandemic, has changed for a lot for us. It has disrupted our routines and with the continuing recommend guidelines and restrictions has given some of us more free time. As a result, more time to spend on pastimes like baking bread, bird watching, walking etc. I called this blog post UFO's as this for me stands for "UnFinished Objects“ ...a problem that I unfortunately have a lot of in my studio. With the loss of my job and routines, I found myself with no excuse but to tackle them. I tried to focus on these unfinished paintings and re-examine and in some cases, repaint them. Rereading Robert Genn's Twice  Weekly Letters on Compositional Boo Boos and How to Critique Yourself will help with the process of tackling UFO's. Some went well and even got accepted to shows but others were unfortunately launched out to space where they belonged:)
