Small Windows of Time

Painted over the course of a few hours, days, weeks or months between the end of 2009-present, these paintings are ones that I fit into my day, usually catching my eye as I am just wandering by busy with something else. The window of time presents itself at random times and stretches and in overlaps, and it is up to me to drop everything and try to give it a shot. The “things” in the paintings are what they are or what they appear to be, never staged, and without significance other than that of the found object and the delight that may bring. Rifling through the mess – both as a “housewife” and as a painter – means that when I see the chaos, I fight between the need to tidy up and the desire to paint it, organizing the forms on the canvas instead of in the room. Everything in the house is part of a painting in progress, which is about as real as you can get.
