The pace of my life has decreased considerably this week. I am back at my summer house and the painting I am doing is limited to walls and doors! It has been very warm even by the ocean and the whales are beginning their yearly visit to the harbour. This is my favouite time of summer. Nothing can beat the feeling you get when the sun sparkles the water and the whales skim and blow. The quietness of it permeates your whole being.
I have four 16 inch square canvases lined up on my painting table. Nothing has changed their pristine surfaces yet. I go into the studio, sit in my chair and read and sometimes look up to see their blankness - the perfect example of minimilism! I've been waiting impatiently for a book to arrive from a second hand bookstore. Color in Contemporary Art was recommended by a friend of mine. It would be the perfect reading diversion right now but it just won't show up on my doorstep.
