Art Overtakes Fireplace

April 21, 2017

Or, the perils of a makeshift home studio. It is difficult for me to be in the same room with a piece of art in progress without hatching ideas for hundreds of touch-ups, elaborations, additions, and omissions.

One way to trick myself into finding the time to complete those long grisaille-method oil paintings is to blend the process in with my nightly TV-watching wind down, which typically consists of no more than every possible waking hour for me.

Strangely, the painting always seems to take on an antagonistic relationship to the fireplace, somehow occluding it and usurping it all at the same time.
