I've been painting and scraping and wiping, then switching to a
larger canvas and back to smaller for over a week now. Six days
out of town and rust had set in. Or maybe it's just that I think differently
at different sizes? Also tried a small painting of roses and that was a
dismal failure, but I will try again. But six days in Santa Monica visiting
my daughter was definitely worth it. We took day trips to Laguna and
Santa Barbara and the wine country . . . all breathtakingly beautiful!
There's such a big world out there and I need to get out into it more.
