Farewell and New Beginnings!!

A grand thanks to all that have followed this blog over the years -- but the time has come to retire this site and focus on the band's new site. But worry not! If you still want the inside peek into my mind and musings, they can be found at my new tumblr page, I'd love to hear from you there and gosh darn everywhere, so please stay in touch. I'm out and about and will catch you 'round the bend. Much love and many cheers, Liza

Memories -- Early Work

My mother's abstract, bold and beautiful paintings started with simpler exercises. While she may be known for her particular style now, I remember fondly one of her very first paintings she approached in her early painting career. It's a bowl of pears. I knew she hated painting pears, but to this day it remains one of my favorites for its purity and play on tequnique vs. personal style. Here's a piece by Olle Baertling, a Swiss artist known for abstract works, but this early gem stands out as my favorite still.
