seeing red

in the studio aug 22 red still life

Different painting on the easel today.  Yesterday’s painting was a large still life.  I put paint on nearly every square inch of its 48 x 36 inch surface.  Yesterday’s paint surface is tacky so while that one dries, I take up this smaller painting.  I like switching from one painting to another.  It keeps my thoughts lively.

I’m working from drawings, but rather than use the actual drawings I find it more convenient to use my computer —

And there are cheerful things in the studio to look at whenever I look up from my work.

But here’s the guest of honor.  The painting is in a middle phase.  Lots of stuff is already there, but everything needs to be gussied up.

So, that’s my day.
