My starting point this time is a little confection of a painting I call “Buried Treasure”. Because of its expanses of rich white surfaces with hits of smaller brights, I think of it as my Wayne Thiebaud moment. Not that I set out to make something along those lines, or to reference my husband Kal Honey’s work either, by working with a grid, it just happens that those qualities are what bubbled up in my process of making.
So while the original was an experiment on a small canvas, now I am scaling up. My first layer is all about large, impasto surface marks, which I think will require a few days to dry before I can move onto the next step. Check back for updates.
