This week in muse flogging, 4 Sept 2010

In my studio this week:

  • I’ve been pretty diligent about keeping up with my daily paintings, although I don’t seem to be able to stick to any single subject or style for very long. This week I painted palette-knife cities, still lifes, and Oktoberfest scenes.
  • I’ve been re-working my portrait of Jen to the point where it’s either done, or I need to set it aside for a while. Photo coming soon.
  • I got a delivery of art supplies, despite a pile of ridiculous things going wrong with the order (some totally my fault). Yay for great delivery service! (Did I really just praise German customer service? Wow. That might be a first.) And yay for new canvas boards and new colors of oil paint.

Other exciting stuff:

  • I discovered the American TV series Work of Art and devoured the entire first season in a few days (I like to put shows, movies, music, or podcasts on in the background while I paint). I can’t decide whether I love it or hate it, but I’m glad it exists. At the end of the day, I’m a sucker for certain reality TV shows, and this was definitely one that kept me entertained, if not impressed. Have you seen it?

What were your creative accomplishments for the week?

    Love your work and enjoy seeing it. Where do you order your supplies from in Germany? You are inspiring me to pick up the paintbrush again after a decade or two.

    Forgot to mention that I also enjoyed the series Work of Art. Now that is great reality t.v.

    Thanks, Chris! I order from http://www.boesner.com/ . Their website isn’t perfect but it gets the job done. Delivery prices and speed are pretty great. If you have a car and a little time, it’d definitely be worth venturing out to their store just outside Munich – it’s pretty inspiring to surround yourself with so many art supplies. I love going there, but given how often I need new supplies, it’s nice to have the delivery option, too.
