Tiburon art festival...

AUGUST 27: Check in with RUTH LIVINGSTON  Studio at 74 main st, Tiburon, this weekend, as part of Tiburon art fest .  You'll see some great design items and some of my paintings that will be there for several weeks.

Also, look forward to my Meditations Series that will be shown in the Bay Area, soon!

I've been asked to explain my process, and here it is--at least as of today after having been out of studio for several months (due to health problems in the family):
Clueless!  played Bach partitas, lots of coffee...  I scraped down an older painting (my work is on wood, so scraping is possible).  More Williams and some Toninho Horta.  Put lots of paint on the wood, using squeegies and rags...and whatever.  Discovered some fabulous images and proceeded to tickle them to life.  I think there has to be a dialog between the work and the painter and maybe some inspiration from the angel of paint.  I'm trying to bring the thing to life.
Tomorrow, I will answer the questions:  1)  What is "the thing"?  2)  Did I make something worth pursuing into another session; or will I start again with the scraper?
