The New Room
18" x 12". Alkyd. 1987
The room is a loft conversion and is where I now do most of my painting. This picture
was the first to be done there, when the room was still virtually empty. I like a painting
by Gwen John of her attic room, and the book on the floor is open at a page with a reproduction
of her painting.
"All the misfortunes of men derive from one single thing - their inability to be
at ease in a room at home."
- after Pascal.
