Arrival by Heather Riley, local Philadelphia artist

I’ve been painting and creating a lot in the past weeks – after dealing with the flu, I’m finally able to be back to the blog. I have been exploring different materials, different approaches and letting myself play more in the studio. I go through cycles it seems – where making work can be difficult, restricted and tedious — to just playing around with every possibility. The latter is where I am now, and I am grateful for it after a long few months of the tedious. I’m going to put up several short posts to get caught up – and just show the work. Here is one to start.
