Let there be light.


Desk Lamp

Floor LampI’ve never been too fussy about light quality in my studio. I like to have enough light to be able to see what I’m doing, but I’m not the sort to go on and on about the perfect North light. As a result I’ve always been able to work in just about any space I’ve had to. I guess if I was a portrait painter or a landscape painter I’d be a bit more concerned about light quality, but as it is all I really need is to be able to tell what colour I’m using and where the tip of my brush is.

The curators.


Coming to agreement.

Coming to agreement.

My daughter was digging around the studio when she came upon a pile of small unfinished canvases that I began working on several months ago . She surprised me by placing them on the floor in a close group much like I intend to hang them if I ever get around to completing them. She and my son spent some time shifting the paintings around, and discussing which ones they liked best before finally coming to an agreement about the best arrangement for the paintings.

This way?

This way?

I wonder if they intend to write an essay to accompany the exhibition?
