There they are, my paintings all wrapped up and ready to go out the door and into Bill's truck and off to Edmonton for my show.
Clear empty space... ahhh.... with rainbows on the walls!
Atmospheric out-of-focus, hehee.
Apparently spider plants, besides being general air cleaners, are specifically good at removing formaldehyde from local atmospheres.
This is happy news for acrylic painters.
Almost all acrylic paints contain formaldehyde in tiny amounts, but because the paint dries so fast it is not much of an issue for the most part. However, when applying glazes over large areas the potential toxicity is something to be aware of. I wear a mask now when doing all-over large glazes, because it would be a real pity if I developed sensitivities to this medium as well as the oils!!!
And now I have two spider plants, which help keep the air clean and also make the studio more cosy.
