minimalist seriality, a pandemic practice

the beginning of a series

Listening, when called, and taking the plunge.  “There are no mistakes” is my mantra. (Learning that with acrylic paint, you can have a “do-over”, which is not the same as a mistake.)

Going into solitude this month, as directed by our public health officials, I was pulled by my stash of 12 x 12 canvases and acrylic paints… which have lain dormant for over 10 years.  

I’ve taken up the practice of painting every day – no requirement other than painting one thing.  Some days it is still a postcard.  Other days a canvas. Hence a series is born.  

Here is a photo of the first 12 laying on the floor in my living room, in the order they were painted (l-r).
