Maybe it's the flash effect that lends this photo a certain forensic tone. Maybe it's the pink bathroom effect. Maybe the jerry-rigged-electrical-socket effect.
*laughs* (maybe it's the artwork itself, but I'm not going there... !)
Anyway, here is a small room in the back corner of the basement, fairly separate from the rest of the house, and so it makes a good oil drying room. It makes a good darkroom, too, but for now it's an oil-drying room.
I had to stand in the bathtub to get this shot. There are a few more paintings not in the frame, quietly and patiently drying, while the less patient artist is off in her studio room working on other things.
