Texas Women's University, 1953, B.S.
When I paint an abstract painting my goal is to create harmonious color and a design that I have not seen before. Once I succeed at creating what I consider to be a beautiful and somewhat original work I feel the painting is finished.
To me painting is playing and inventing at the same time. It is also work that requires intensive looking.
