At last the floor is visable again. Phase II of this project will be photographing all my work to update my website (long overdue).
I keep this portrait of my Father's Mother in my studio (see below). It seems funny to call her my Grandmother, because I never met her. Her name was Otilla and she died young, long before I was born, during a big wave of tuberculous in Illinois. Her husband (my grandfather) died too, within days of Otilla and my Father and his siblings were orphaned at an early age. I lead such a life of privilege compared to my Father's family! I bet my Dad's family would think it is funny that I spend my time painting paintings. They were farmers.
I want to report that I also had a portrait photo taken by Phil Harris with an old old camera--(what kind of camera took Otilla's photo?) I bet I won't like any of the results from the photo session...(not sure my hair looked any good)... but if they look all right , I will post results.
All right...that was my day.
Is your studio messy .....or tidy? Where do you store your completed paintings?
