Cathleen Rehfeld - \"Small daily oil paintings have an immediate freshness about them. Whatever you are thinking about that day sort of goes into them, almost like a visual diary. I like the creamy color intense luscious look of oil paint. I like making brushstrokes that bring out that quality in the paint. I try out new ideas, new colors, new subject matter from day to day, because of the small format. It is very freeing to be able to paint something and get it out relatively quickly.\"
