Re: WOYE (What's On Your Easel) 2019

Cooked in the microwave? Storing paintings there? Sheila, please explain!

But don't feel bad -- a curator recently found a piece of a grasshopper in a Van Gogh!

Weird things happen to the greatest artists!

I'm starting to wonder if I have ADHD. When I try to do more than one thing at a time things get very messed up.



I live in world's smallest apartment and there was damage to the place in January due to a burst pipe. As a result I'm half packed up because I thought the property management were going to "make me whole" but they are shirking. I had decided to leave things partially packed as I look for a place to move to. So this tiny apartment is totally disorganized and, add 3 cats and a dog to further create chaos.


Cats are adept at walking through wet paint so I keep all my canvases being worked on smallish so I can hide them in the microwave until dry. I had one standing against the side and didn't see it before I had the popcorn popping and stinking to holy hell.


The piece also had metal paint on it to further the hell. It was less then 13 seconds but I burned fingers trying to get that painting out, before it totally caught on fire. I'll eventually do a bigger piece like it- glad I have photos on here. My life is no where near as exciting as it might sound! (I have also seen small bugs in my apartment but they are not in my art, I hope. I am terrified of bugs.)

Re: WOYE (What's On Your Easel) 2019

Ah! Now I understand. Thanks for clarifying.

I work in the dining half of our combined living room and dining room. Laura is very nice about having art stuff all over the place. Thank goodness!

Hi to all your cats and to your dog!

What's around my easel is more interesting...

Laura and I are at Angel Creek Campground, near Wells, Nevada, USA. On my easel is the first stage of underpainting, too dark as usual. But the surroundings are angelic...!

Very nice! I fail to see the "too dark" but oh well,


I love looking at the underpainting photographed with the real scene in the backdrop..... very coy!
