From Deb Clarke;
The Scent of Paint.
“my studio is in my kitchen. the oil paint gets messy. i have nearby
sheets of blotting paper to cover this up when i am done working for
the day. i don’t need inspiration to work. i just work. right now i’m
still working on the 22″ square with the standing figure. it’s leaning
against a gold verre eglomise of keys. it’s not finished.
this morning the scent of the paint was a bit heavy in the kitchen.
i took the paper off the palette. got out the easel and started to work.
decided to take the figure off the center of the canvas. re drawing,
trying to relate some color notes. not too picky. just trying to
stay out of the center.
2 hours this morning brings me to this. i will leave the set up for a bit.
go for a short walk. have some lunch. and start again. i have six hours
to paint. or stretch another canvas. maybe both.”
best, and onward.
