How to Paint a Chair and Thoughts on Painting

“How to Paint a Chair, a Work in Progress and My Thoughts on Painting.”

By Debbie Clarke

“Art is really a battlefield. Only when he no longer knows what he is doing, does the painter do good things.”
Edgar Degas, French Impressionist

Some music that I want for my studio archive: Sade. have always loved her work, and ’soldiers of art’ are ’soldiers of love’, in that if you are called to make art, you will make art for a very demanding mistress. a lover that will have no one between, that will wake you when you want sleep, that will delay you when you have appointments, that will make you not feel ‘well’ when you are not dancing with the muse. and muse seems too nice a word. dancing with a muse is neither romantic nor poetic. it is a hungry ghost in need of a door into this realm of reality. and when she truly decides to dance with, then through you, it is better than an orgasm.
the muse doesn’t dance every day, she is fickle in her love, and never obediant. i spend most of my days in the practice of seeing and drawing, so my hands, eyes, and heart are ready, whenever she decides to come, because that is her nature.

Here’s Debbies Interesting Video on How to Paint a Chair.

She filmed it with camera in one hand and brush in the other.
