May 21st, Hofmann Visits My Studio
Today I walked into my studio and saw my Hans Hofmann book. His influence on me was big. The way he connects and interlocks paint you feel the paintings. The pure abstractions are bold. As I have worked through this Painting a Day in the Month of May I am realizing that I love the rawness of painters. Even in the mastery of an art form the raw ness that remains is important to me. I believe I reached a rawness with this piece.
