Diebenkorn Influence

Dear Helen, also Doug and Lynn, and Micheal,

I have been remiss. I have not answered your emails and feel remorse. You showed an interest in my work and I did not reply.. Words are difficult to find. Painting is a conversation, but with myself. But you heard me. Helen gave me a clue. Hidden inside my small box of square business cards (called moo cards) she slipped in a similar card of her own. Today I found it and went to her website. She mentioned Richard Diebenkorn as an influence, a major influence that I mention, too, on my website. We both do abstract and representational work. We are the same age, we have shown in the same gallery which is where we met and spoke briefly. I forget names. I feel close to her.
Doug and Lynn. Is either of you an artist? The odds are great. Please let me know. We feel close to people who respond to our work because they relate to us, too.

Michael, you requested a price list. I will send you a separate note. Are you an artist? I will post the results of this one question survey. Thank you all for the time you took to write and the appreciation you showed.

With fond regards,

Joan
