Beer and Pretzels
Just finished this 11 x 14" piece today. Glad to get back to painting. I spent a couple of days cleaning out and rearranging my studio. I use the term "studio" lightly because I paint in part of our basement right next to my car. The gas fumes are really mind freeing. And... I get great reflections off of my silver car.
As I was cleaning my space I came to the realization that I am a canvas hoarder. I own WELL over 100 canvases. A&E may need to do a show on me. Art supply hoarder. Not sure my reasoning for having so many. Maybe I have a fear of being caught without a canvas. I think the real problem is that I need to be off of a well known art supply dealer's e mail list. I get at least one e mail a day from them with deals I can not pass up. Anyway.....I am glad I took the time to clean up and realize that I do not need any more canvases. Now I need to start painting them. 99 5 x7" canvases on the wall, 99 5 x 7" canvases on the wall, take one down...
Next blog I will discuss why I have nine cans of cream of mushroom soup in my pantry.
