I jumped up on my bike despite of the snow. I biked some and walked some, the three kilometers to reach my studio. I need to go here. I can't say it is soley my love for painting that brings me here. I believe it may just as much be this house that draws me. The pease in here does me good. And as I paint. I practice pease.
I look in the almanack and see this is on the day a month I have been here painting. Maybe I go here like three times a week. Am not sure. And I am not sure for how long I stay each time. But I feel I can stay here for ever, every time!
In average I have finished two paintings a week. They are small; 30cm x 35cm.
Above painting feels finished now. I painted a solid dark area on the right side. I notice that the smooth and solid area looks good next to the blurry, vivid surface on her shoulder. And I sanded the left eye a little.
