While I could mean that metaphorically, in this case, I don’t. I really do paint in a prison, well, ex-prison. Once a week, I paint with a wonderful group of artists on a former military base. The room we paint in has prison cells along its perimeter. When I started painting there, there was still a cot, sink and toilet in every cell, but curtains instead of bars.
It’s a good reminder that I am free to paint what I want, and that even if I’m feeling stuck… well, I’m not as stuck as I could be!!!
The painting above is a work in progress. I am missing Alice in Wonderland, now that I’ve finished my piano. Just working on a bunch of small, fun pieces now – trying to get back in the groove after weeks of not having time to paint!
The studio is really quite cheery, as long as you don’t ponder its history… 😛
When I want inspiration for a really dark piece, I’ll go sit in here awhile…
Well, that’s all for now. I’m in a two person show, coming up in a few weeks. More on that soon. I have an art page on Facebook now too, stop on by!
