I find it so energizing to see how another artist, and especially one you really identify with, works. I had some new paintings that I showed at Woodside Braseth Gallery on Thursday night and my friend and fellow artist, Alfred Harris, came by and took a look, and then after the festivities, invited a few of us over to hang out. His way of working is something I completely understand, lots of little things contributing then later to bigger things. Materials like paper, all types, wood surfaces, again, all types, and finishes that shine. It recharged me to see it all. Thank you Alfred for the post opening enjoyment!
