S_V_H J S Bach Minuet in G Major

This is a near image completion of J. S. Bach’s famous Minuet in G major.  I learned later that this music was composed by Christian Petzoldand. This is a video of a fast pace version of the music:

 

If this music sounds familiar to you that means you are about my age.  Here is a video of the 1965 hit, A Lover’s Concerto,  by the Toys:

 

The image above is of my new temporary studio.  It is about 150 square feet in space.  An enormous help for space, not seen in the photo, is a wall of adjustable bookshelves where I store my painting supplies.  The ceiling is a marvelous eleven feet in height.  At less this time I have some natural light, compared with my 2016 temporary studio.  My only other lighting comes from a five light fan of which I have ungraded two of the bulbs to floods aimed at the artwork.  Still, the lighting is bad.  This makes judging my efforts a learning process, not helped by the lack of room to step back to view this larger work.   I confronted the reality of my temporary studio  when I read this line from a book by David Byrne about his band, the Talking Heads:  “Ive always liked creative restrictions, and here, happily, many were already in place.”  I’ll check that off.
