You've been Tango'd

So I went with the orange, and tied it together with another, nice, adjacent magenta wall. Because why have one bright colour when you can have two!? I think it will be a good asset as it shows my paintings off quite well. I showed a friend around the other day and she ended up buying two cushions so that seems like success already.


I am also really pleased with how it has turned out. It is probably not to everyone's taste (more than probably) but it is perfect for me. I find the room bizarrely peaceful and relaxing. Whether this is due to the colour or the fact that I have sorted out all the things I have been meaning to do in there for ages I wouldn't like to say. Either way, as this is the room that I paint in, I think it is important for me to feel focused and zen in there. The more peaceful my mind is, the more peaceful the painting process is, and the more concentrated I am. I have been finding my ability to paint rather preoccupied at the moment, I think because I have had too many house things to sort out and too much on my mind. I have done a lot of sorting out recently though, and finished off a lot of half done things. All that remains are the blinds to be fitted on Wednesday and the bathroom, to be given a good scrub and repaint.

And then I am done.

Except for finding some more architectural work to do and now I have two commissions to complete before the end of the month. But work related things seem to take up less of my art brain as they are not creative. Interior decorating is, and that respect it clashes a bit or niggles for attention. So hopefully, once these last elements are completed, I can concentrate on the other bit of my life that needs attention:

Earning some money.....!
