Apart from a couple of drawing sessions, there has been no large chunks of time devoted to painting this past week---too busy with Christmas preparations. However, it occurred to me that I could claim an "installation" - the tree is up and decorated so that is part of my "practice" (to use artspeak) for the week. One interviewed instructor in a glossy art magazine said that after studying art, everyday activities are potentially loaded with social, political and historical meaning. Wow! and to think I was just decorating a tree to make things look nice!
