Stacks of Paintings

I just realized that I do production painting on weekends. When I paint Photo Paintings there is lots of drying time between layers, so I guess I do it on weekends so I can pretend I'm not really working (because I'm doing other things at the same time). Sunday, during drying time, I bought a washer and dryer.

When I first started looking I gravitated towards the beautiful bright red front loader. Then I got my wits about me and checked Consumer Reports. What I ended up with was far different than the lovely shiny red ones. I chose Fisher and Paykel, a European brand revered for it's efficiency. Very low water and electricity usage, they promise. And they are stark white. Very utilitarian.

I missed the gym this morning, since by 7:00 am I was well into painting mode. Once I start production of the photo paintings it's a whirlwind til they are done. Which is now. I've got 16 paintings stacked in the studio, with three canvases up on the wall, and two more commissions in progress. Yep, it's a workday all right!

I can't imagine you pretending that you are not working!

I offended the salesman when I wouldn't look at a washer and dryer with all the bells and whistles. ;-} I go the great white utilitarian set, too -- from a different store.
