"Every painting has a reason and a season. It felt like abstract but I did not know how it would progress. I sectioned the canvas in quarters and laid basic colors in weaving them between.  I worked while the paint was crazy wet. I wanted the edges to form the boundary defining objects. 

Can you see repeated patterns in this painting? The purple, red and blue merge through three times.  Yellow patterns in quarters three times... and three yellow pulls on or close to the vase.  Three large turquoise areas around the outside of the vase. Two on one side and one on the opposite side. So much of this is accidental, but is it truly accidental?  Part of painting is the intuitive pull of the palette knife as if in rhythm to the music playing in the room. Purposeful painting never has fresh freedom." 
Color always a pure constant in Laurie's paintings. She loves the mystery as she unravels things on the canvas. One stroke will trigger a reaction and a motion forward. The strokes build into a narrative of their own. The painting longs to be free, to stretch and find balance in the distortion. 


As an artist, Laurie is aware of the need of discovery and as well as the need to establish a style that is hers and no one else's style. As a member of The Daily Painters from 2006 through the closure of the group in 2018, Laurie was one of the few large scale painters. While many artists painted 8 x 8 pieces, most of hers were 24 x 36 up to 40 x 60... and yes... that is one painting a day.  The larger the canvas the more powerful the paint.  Laurie has blogged from those early days forward taking a break after 2014 and returning here and there throughout the years.
