Hopefully life goes on down an unexpected path, one of opportunities. Many stressful challenges and decisions ahead. I am not sure I want to make art about the fire. I bought canvas and paint yesterday. Do I repaint the pic that was vaporized? Or what about the one I found inspired by Bochlin and had not finished. I am thinking about Matisse who said, "What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject-matter, an art which could be for every mental worker, for the businessman as well as the man of letters, for example, a soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue."
My present studio for a year is between the dining room area and the living area and the kitchen. Paul Klee painted at his kitchen table. Hopefully I will rise to the occasion. I will have to be neat until the house is restored. The blog posting is one step forward.
