Big wood panels. I mean, huge! Just huge. Too big for my easel so I’ve rigged up a multi-stool flat top to work on. I began painting thinking of lucky Chinese red. A red so orange it wavers on the color boundaries. To cover the surface requires a lot of paint. I mixed and mixed red, orange, white, phosphorescence, baby pink, green. The colors splattered on my apron and my jammies. Yes, that is what I paint in. PJ’s & apron. Bandit watched me from the corner of his eyes.

I just love the color glowing in the morning light. The shadows from my windows remind me of Bertolucci’s Il Conformista.
