This summer 2017 I am spending a bit of time working out in the sierra foothills. I begin my day at 5:30 AM to focus on my work. Although I am sorely missing the city (S.F.), I will immerse myself once I return.

I’ve completed the Diebenkorn series of 7 works of various sizes where I appropriate his color palette. Below is my rather small  20 x 30″ OP (Ocean park) 79. Not sure if the colors will show correctly and it is still wet:


Here is a large view of my artwork:


and here is Deibenkorn's Ocean Park 79 which I appropriated for the palette



Kathryn Arnold’s paintings feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections which make it possible to revise and complement art history. Combining unrelated aspects lead to surprising analogies. By experimenting with aleatoric processes, she creates intense personal moments masterfully created through rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer into an internally comprehensible narrative through spaces, fields of color and interpretive markings. Space becomes intuitive aesthetic power. This work is one from her Small Works series.
