It's nutty. Nutty to wake up one day and decide you *must* have a group of white objects. You then realize you only have one white object, so you tear through the art space to find 3 more to paint. Then you photograph them on the red wall where they live and it's not great, so you move all your husband's books off the office shelf so you can do it on the blue background instead. Yeah, nutty.
I think my eyes crave these serene, simple images. Especially when my real world is strewn with little cars and airplanes, a makeshift drum set and piles of laundry I need to fold. Thank goodness the small ones go back to school tomorrow, much as I love them!
