RUTHLESS EDITING IS KEY is part of the Spring Series, Breathe, which is an abstract expression of the exploration of seeking out a simpler life, letting go of stuff, and becoming more minimalist in the search for balance and streamlining. Much of this series involved painting over old paintings and using materials already in the studio instead of buying new. I call this "RUTHLESS EDITING IS KEY" because in the process of painting it, I was reminded of a writing professor in college who commented on how great my writing was but that I needed to be a better editor. On one of my research papers she wrote some of the best advice ever: “Ruthless Editing is Key”. This comment sums up what the series is really about: editing in life. This abstract painting is a mixed media work which includes elements of collage, graphite, and soft pastel over washes of acrylic paint.
