This experiment in imagination started with a sweeping line, then other lines, then color in oil pastels. Early on I knew this needed to be expressed as a large oil painting.
I was lucky in a lottery to be chosen to take a two-day class at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Deer Isle, Maine. I selected Abstract Drawing as a way to push myself into something challenging and new. It was a well-taught workshop in a roomy studio with agreeable fellow classmates. I blasted away, and soon generated a stack of designs in my response to the exercises the instructor had for us. The sketch for Zebra flower was in that bunch, done in oil pastels and crayon. It stuck in my mind. I scaled it up in my studio and painted it big, in oil paint. It is an experiment, as are all of my paintings.
