I had a great conversation with artist Lisa Golightly – yes, that’s her real name – in Portland.  Lisa paints figurative and abstract paintings. Her figurative paintings are like faded memories of an idyllic summer and her abstract paintings have a powerful organic simplicity that is hard to get right. She does.
Her work is exhibited worldwide in solo and group shows, and she also has a big presence on etsy.

We talk about white floors, buckets of water, small cars, and of course art, lots of art and painting . . .

Here are the main points of what we talk about:

  • Origins of figurative work,
  • House paint,
  • Color studies,
  • Color palette,
  • Abstract painting,
  • Making prints,
  • Doing what scares you,
  • Cellphone photography,
  • Underlying themes,
  • Deadlines and play,
  • Not waiting to be discovered,
  • Etsy,
  • Most moving painting to make,
  • Big art dreams,
  • Current artistic challenges,
