My husband is so talented.
This is his latest. It’s actually a study of a John Singer Sargent painting. Right now, he’s working on a series of paintings — the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.
He hasn’t decided yet what to do with this painting. We don’t hang much of his artwork in our own apartment (by his request, not by mine), although one of my favorites is above my desk. I think he should try to sell it, as I think this is a painting many people would want to display — the horsemen may not be as marketable as wall art — but he isn’t sure about it. And really, because he doesn’t have enough for a show right now — and because it’s a study of another painting, and he isn’t sure this style is something he wants to put out there as “his work,” his style — I’m not sure how he would go about selling it, anyway.
Unfortunately, it will probably sit in our closet, which I find a little sad. But I’m just so happy he’s painting more lately. I think this has a lot to do with the aforementioned office reorganization. He actually has room to work now. And hopefully this new working space will inspire me, too. It kind of has to, as my newest dissertation chapter is due in… let’s see… a week.
P.S. Check out the new pick by carrots.
