Painting in the Studio
I usually paint in my home studio at night. Never during the day and never in Studio Crescendoh, unless I'm teaching there. Today, I painted for half a day in Studio Crescendoh, just to try it out. In the light of day ... reminding myself that this is part of my job. To paint. In the light of day. In the dark of night. To paint has become part of my job. Gawd. How'd that ever happen? Hashtag: grateful.
I didn't have my usual creature comforts but I really enjoyed the process. It was so all about the painting ... no loading the washing machine in between strokes, no letting the dogs in or out, no going to the fridge to get a snack. There was absolutely no distraction. Just me, my music, and the beautiful natural light. And I could sprawl everything out and work on several pieces at once.
I also enjoyed that it was during normal weekday work hours ... to see and be seen by a workforce ... lawyers lawyering, hair dressers hair dressing, shop owners selling ... and painters painting.
I'm gonna get my paints and supplies organized so that I can go to the studio to do this on a regular basis. I'd love to be able to paint at least once a month (or more) in the studio. Perhaps I'll become so organized that I could even eventually announce a regular schedule of when I'll be painting there in case anyone wants to drop in and say hello. We'll see what happens. :)
