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.
