cleaning the studio...

...and other adventures in art

A new painting. What’s it doing on the floor?  I prefer to work this way, but I do most of the painting on the wall so that I can properly see it.  Working flat on the floor makes it difficult to see the entire painting without distortion!  Once I know I have the basic information down, I can take it off the wall and work like this.

You can see a more conventional photo of it (yes, hanging on the wall) here.
