Room to Grow
I’ve settled on working in the studio in my home, at this point. With a bit of a clean up and reorganisation of the space to enable a number of different working areas are at my disposal. I thought it might be interesting to keep a photographic log of how it changes, as the fragments of memory emerge and creativity ensues. I love the cosy notion that Autumn is around the corner and yet what will happen in here will be a world away from rainy days in Bolton.
Interestingly, while he was completing his Yellowstone work, Moran actually moved house from Philadelphia to Newark and it might be that I too may have find another space, if this relatively small studio becomes impractical and the scale and number of pieces increase. Moran was also quite happy for quiet groups to watch him as his canyon painting’s progressed. I just can’t imagine being to able do this but the modern equivalent interests me. I will record as much as I can at various stages of all the work for the blog. Another idea I’m also toying with is trying to capture the painting process on video to give people a good sense of how the work comes about.
Right, to the studio!
