Writing Desk by Colin Page (size, date unavailable)
Colin Page is painter living in Maine whose life affirming and exuberant color sensibility encourages you to give the world another chance. Even in the coldest, darkest moments of winter there seems to be hope for renewed life once you warm up your eyes with many of these paintings. His interiors and still-life appeal to me most with the simplicity of organization and color harmony. I envy his living closer to NYC as he will no doubt enjoy a visit to the Metropolitan Musuem’s major show of Bonnard’s late interiors going on right now.
He a personable writing style for his blog/Journal that makes an interesting but somewhat quirky read. Also of note, he has a book for sale, Painting and Writing, that you can get from his home page. At first I thought it was a book discussing issues about painting and writing (something I could definitely use!) but upon looking closer the book seems to be his writings about his own work and not insights on getting painters to write better.
