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'."
