Night Practice

Although I usually work during the day, the reflections and faint colors available in the studio windows are of increasing interest.

When I began to make copies of David's student, Cochereau's painting David's Studio in late 2005, which led me to make miniatures of some of the objects in my studio, I found there were a number of other artists making related work, like Joe Figg's fabulous recreations of well known artists' studios and Tom Burkhardt's deeply satisfying (if only experienced in reproduction) cardboard recreation of his own studio.

Historically, of course, there is Matisse, Courbet, Morandi, and Guston to begin a partial list.

how do you studio?

To activate a discussion/blog on the art of studio practice, I am interested in your responses to these two initial questions.

1. What do you do when you are distracted to get yourself back to work, or, what are some common ways you distract yourself?

2. What do you do for fun/pleasure while working in the studio?
