It's 7:30 and I walk in to a dark studio. I switch on the lights and open the shades. Teacup in hand I look down...AHHH, It's time to clean. Thanks to Carol Gillot and her mouth watering blog(Paris Breakfasts) I don't feel to bad. Check out her post with a picture of (Francis Bacon's sloppiest studio in the world award).
Welcome to my studio. This is the after clean up picture. Look at those sad empty walls. I hope to fill them up with paintings traded with daily painters. That is my north window and there is one on the west side (left).
Some art historian should do a study: How many un-touched brushes does the average artist leave behind when they die?
One of the things people don't talk about when you start doing Daily Paintings. Where do you put everything?
My art manager/ studio decorator/wife gets all the credit for one of the best ideas for managing space, displaying and drying art work. She is, of course, increasing her commission again.
So, what does a studio painter do after he cleans the studio?
He gets in his truck, drives downtown and paints outside.
Just another day in the life. Enjoy the weekend everyone!
