Back to work

The Thanksgiving weekend was very enjoyable. For once I took time off and socialized.

I did change one thing though: I had a huge piece of canvas on my wall that I'd painted, to which I had stitched a piece of fabric and a black-and-white photograph. Last night I realized that I was tired of looking at it, so I removed the fabric and photo and painted something new, right there on the wall. The wall was my easel. One day I'm going to have a wall where I can pin my paper and canvas and work directly on them!


  1. this reminds me of a story about Diego Rivera; his father covered Rivera's bedroom walls with canvas so he could explore art and not paint on other walls in the house. i like how the the blue and yellow mix in the background of your new piece.

  2. You are so inspiring Colette. It would be so wonderful to have a wall to paint like that, so liberating

    I wonder, did my parcel arrive yet?
