red paint can

7″ by 7″ daily pastel painting, unframed
It’s usually easy to decide the colors for a painting but a room in my house . . I get stuck, sometimes for years. My kitchen walls are greenish and I wanted a contrasting color on one wall. I’ve had samples patches of color up but I just couldn’t commit. I finally decided to go for red. The paint dripping on the side of the can looked luscious so I took a photo of it before I closed the can and cleaned my brush.
On a different note I was comforted in hearing that Norman Rockwell worked from photos. The story goes that one day his photographer was dropping off some photos and Rockwell begrudgingly said something like “Oh great! More magazine work.”
