A train called studio

Studio, originally uploaded by leyaevelyn.

In a week and a half, I’ll know better what I have been doing this summer. I do know I’ve been working on a large number of new paintings, all at once. I go back and forth, not only between them, but also thinking they are good, to thinking they need more work, and sometimes even thinking I should toss them. But I keep going. I feel like a train with no caboose.

When I was a child and we lived in Richmond, VA, I used to dream I was on a train that kept going and going and going and I kept trying and trying and trying to jump off, but I never could.

I still can’t.


About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
