Beautiful figure painting, Michael. I really like his work. Some Paintings are very tight, some very loose.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... September 2017

I like it when you can get both tight and loose in the same painting -- I think it shows that you are just as aware of the composition as you are of it's contents. That Jeremy Mann painting is terrific!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... September 2017

The painting is great....the contrast is dramatic...

the studio looks amazing but sometimes there is a thing of too much light...

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... September 2017

Thanks mtpalms, This trip was more for my husband and me to hike in the nature, but since I somehow got MCL inflammation in my left knee this spring, it is taking ages to heal and only can do so much (doc warned that it'll take ages to heal since it's a ligament that got affected) I was forced to find new hobbies like biking and plein air to make up for it. It's a good thing in a way because I found my 2 new hobbies I absolutely love! Also love this studio art you shared (the first one). I wish you a lot of good luck with your future studio and that you'll get the space you need to work with your art! Take it easy in the meantime.

Indeed AnnieA. We'll be back there every year anyway, so no rush. This painting you shared is beautiful! Sooo love it!

MarkMark, very roomy studio! Love it!

Michaelshane, love this tight and loose painting. So beautiful! The contrast is breathtaking.

I don't really have an official studio here. I'm just making this little corner my space. :/ Let's hope I'll get rich and can afford a bigger house with a studio integrated or nearby!

Good Morning Oilycats!!!!

That is a John Singer Sargent piece, here is a write up I copy/pasta'd:
"his picture represents the Italian painter Ambrogio Raffele, with whom Sargent vacationed in the Italian Alps. Raffele is using his tiny hotel room as a studio; he and his landscape painting are shifted to the left corner, and much of this composition is given over to laundry and rumpled bed linens. The London Times wrote admiringly, "Surely, never were tumbled white sheets so painted before." The pictorial challenge of painting white on white is one Sargent particularly enjoyed; he handled it with extraordinary bravura here. Purchased by the MFA the year after it was completed, An Artist in His Studio was the first painting by Sargent to be acquired by an American museum."

I don't remember seeing it when I was in Boston last month, either it was out on loan, or I was just suffering from sensory overload from seeing so many Sargents in one day.

Good for you!

An annual trip to France instead of a roomy studio is a fair enough trade off, but I do hope we can all have both some day!

Sorry about the ligament thing, but I guess the plus side is finding new hobbies you really enjoy. I am looking forward to biking again when I move. I was up to 10 miles a day a few years ago but had to stop because it was just getting too dangerous because of increased traffic. The only paved road through my neighborhood is 55 mph, 2 lane, and the shoulders are soft sand. When I move, I will still be on a mile of bad road (some dirt, some very potholed pavement, all un-maintained), but once in town, the county just repaved most of the streets, and I will be 10 miles from Joshua Tree National Park. I have a Wednesday hiking group that meets in town too.

So I am trading off some space, but gaining easier access to so many things. It is going to be a real trial for my inner hermit!


Mark, thank you for mentioning the artist whose studio that is. I just spent and hour reading about him and looking at his work.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... September 2017

Marcia, you'll probably find beading issue threads in the Technical subforum of the main Oils forum. It's in the pinned items at the top, along w/ Painting from the Masters, etc. (Forgive if you already know that.) I've been thinking of asking the mods to pin particularly useful threads from the Technical forum at the too there too. Might be a lot of work, though. I would love to have any of those studios, although I'm not so certain about painting on top of a bed! (And I presume it was somebody else's bed! ) Whose studio was the last one? Again I'm going to suggest your refurbished trailer for the studio space issue. Would it work for the candle maker to use?

Mark, glad you liked the Dyer painting. She's a favorite of mine. She sure can handle a brush! About the Fischl photo: forget about studio space - I want to live there! So much light!

Michael, the Jeremy Mann is fabulous - he says so much with just a little.

DMA, glad you are in the mend and that you were able to make lemonade when life handed you a lemon. It's funny how sometimes the worst thing can turn into something very good. Glad you liked the Dyer!

Marcia, it sounds like there are many plusses to the move! I hope you can silence your inner hermit. I came close to spending an hour reading about Fischel myself, but since I've melted in the heat over the last couple of days, not accomplishing much of anything - I have way too much to do today. ...and it's going to be a scorcher again. If only humidity didn't come with the heat!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... September 2017

Thanks for the info about where to find beading issue threads, I haven't had a chance to look yet myself.

The trailer isn't anywhere close to even being mobile yet, but I have been considering it for storage when it is! When I get moved, I will post pics of my new studio, and you will see why it isn't practical for candle work. Thanks for the suggestions though, I am always open to new ideas.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... September 2017

The last studio belonged to William Merritt Chase: http://artcontrarian.blogspot.com/20...io-scenes.html

I think he may have just been a bit of a hoarder?

Annie I think he lives in Maine but I could be wrong.

MT Eric Fischl is a long term fave of mine ever since I saw his painting 'Bad Boy'

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... September 2017

Very nice art, Becca! I'm gonna try to get back to painting this week, somehow...we have been overcome by an urge to fix up the house. You've seen it and you know how cluttered it is, but it's still an uphill battle. Himself keeps dragging out more and more stuff that he or I can't manage to get rid of.

I really need to lose myself in a painting again, soon. One has been sitting in my mind for a month, and I will have to let loose and do it.
