Nancy Natale's Art in the Studio Blog

Artist and blogger Nancy Natale is running a fun series on her blog called "The Questionnaire". It is her artist's version of the Proust questions . I am a fan of the Actor's Studio version so I was happy to participate. I had answered her questions a couple weeks back so when she posted today I was very tempted to tell her to change them. You can see my original answers at Art in the Studio. Be sure to go through her blog to read other interviews.
I decided to post my alternate answers here.

Lisa, this is great! Maybe I should ask everyone to post alternate answers after they've had time to review what they said originally. How can there be only one answer to these questions? It depends on the day and the mood. Thanks for posting. I'm going to link to this.

Juicy oils. Makes me want to pull out my oil palette and canvas and get to work. Move over wax.
To you and Nancy, Lynette too...so fun reading your blog interviews, studio visits etc with artists.

Hi Lisa!

Your answers were funny and true.

Love this piece! I can see the resemblance to Guston, but also, the harking to Joan Mitchell.

Way to use that light blue!

Ra ra!
