Late in August, I visited Jodie Manasevit's studio for the first time since 2013 (Bushwick Open Studios, 2013 post
). The work has changed from the rich, Bonnard-like palette to a more elegant, subtle touch and coloration. So taken with her elegant studio filled with paintings and drawing studies, I did not photograph the work but looked, and talked, and looked some more. Manasevit generously shared these images at my request so I can share them with you.

|The group. Little chips of color, each gesture visible on the plane, with seasons, and neighborhoods, and all sorts of memories naturally conjured in the fields of these paintings.|
