Besides painting, I maintain Two Coats of Paint, a blog about painting and related issues. The analytic discipline writing requires helps me organize my thoughts and understand feelings that might otherwise rattle around unclarified in my mind. And writing, however deliberate, is mysterious. Sometimes, when I think I have nothing of consequence to say, sitting at the keyboard and describing visual phenomena with specific, carefully chosen words steers me toward modest revelations about what I’m doing in the studio. I never plotted out this kind of synergy, but I’m happy it evolved.  -Sharon Butler, 2012
