The colors are off, the blue is brighter and the orange more yellow. But it’s the best my iphone camera could do in the dark. Over the past two days I’ve been obsessed with painting the bathroom. You can read all about it on Jon’s blog. I haven’t read it yet, I’ve been painting.
So much that just tonight I realized it was Monday and I forgot to post my Good Monday Morning From Bedlam Farm Video. Well I guess that’s what it means to be human, we sometimes forget. So this week it’ll be Good Tuesday Morning From Bedlam Farm.
Walking into the bathroom looks like walking into a fish tank. It’s tropical.
I’m working on my fourth layer of tangerine orange, trying to cover over a lot of blue and a bit of black trim. I have to be patient and wait for the paint to dry before putting on another coat, but it’s not so easy. I want it done.
And I also love that temporary rough edge between the blue and tangerine. Reminds me of a Rothko painting. Two more coats of tangerine at least before I can make that sharp edge between the two colors.
But tomorrow I’m back in my studio. I’ll finish painting the bathroom in my spare moments. It’s just small touch ups and the ceiling left to do.
Maybe I’ll see if the paint is dry enough now to give another coat.
