Ann Knickerbocker blogs about abstract paintings seen recently in San Francisco including works by Indira Martina Morre, Teo Gonzalez, Judith Foosaner, Patrick Wilson, Marilyn Levin, Lora Fosberg, and Reed Anderson.

Knickerbocker discusses qualities and approaches in the works in terms of day - "stability, continuity, a kind of plotline managed through repetition, a plan" - and night - evoking "the shifts, the shadows, the objects, the sweep of the brush... all [conspiring] to suggest working in the moment, without the help of a blueprint."
