When I painted Interiors, I painted what was there. I found everything
I looked at fascinating. No need to arrange anything. I thought it would be boring and
a waste of time. I would start with an object and just go, deliberately not plan
where anything would end on the canvas. I would just take whatever was there
and paint it “as is” at my home/ studio. But once I started painting, nothing
could be touched until I finished — even if it meant not sitting on that chair,
or moving that coffee cup, or sleeping on the bed. I loved the relationship between objects,
the shapes that were created between the things and how when you didn’t “set it up” it ran all
across the whole canvas. I like interiors rather than still lifes - not limiting it
to one area or one spot on the table. These are some of the many, many interiors I’ve done.
