I'm getting ready for a solo show under Covid. Some things will be the same, some different. But it all starts at the same spot--at my paint table with a palette knife and jars of Golden acrylics. I often mix colors without being sure what I'll be doing with them, so I want lots of options. And as a good Swedish daughter with parents who grew up in the Depression, I cannot leave the studio until my plate is cleaned and all of the colors are used. I usually have a big mug of tea beside me, and I turn on a podcast as I work.
I do not take this for granted. I am so grateful that I get to work with color everyday. It's pure delight.
The show will be at the Shoh Gallery in Berkeley at their 4th Street pop-up space, starting on February 4 and going until the end of the month. Thank you, Julie at Shoh, for giving me a reason to fill my palette
