Just beginning to study abstract art in 2016, Streater says she's having the most fun she's ever had at the easel.  "There's no limit to the unorthodox techniques and tools I have invented to layer paint for texture.  The paintings seem to create themselves in a magical sort of way.  It's fascinating! Time flies by so quickly when I'm absorbed in it. Sometimes I feel I've been painting for an hour and a whole afternoon has passed!  I think that's what they call being in 'the zone'."
