Finally sun again. My studio catches lots of natural light. But with all the cloudy weather we had been having, I needed to turn on lights. They just do not reflect the color the same. I find I change my color combinations with natural light compared to electric lights. Though, that can make the painting more interesting, I prefer natural light. I should not complain. When I first moved to Nashville I worked in a warehouse without any natural light, no heat and no air conditioning. During the summer my paint would dry too fast to mix color on the palate and, have it stay liquid while I applied the color. During the winter my fingers were so cold it made holding the brush difficult. I shared the warehouse with some interesting people, which did much to offset the lack of heat and air. The sun shining into my studio after the days of very little light makes the studio and me much more cheerful.
