Blog Jam: Musing on familiar
Last week I hung my show of abstract seascapes — at Eureka’s Redwood Art Association Gallery through Sep 8 — then stopped in at the credit union. An artist was hanging his own abstract seascapes there. It seemed logical that I ask him about his work. He gave me his business card, and I gave him mine. Each showed a seascape of our own making. We looked at each other’s cards, musing on familiar territory: a painted horizontal line defining this over that: a misty math principle, sky over sea. “I’m trying to quit,” he said, meaning the subject matter. “Me, too,” I admitted. “Is it working?” we asked each other together.
