installing the vent seals & starting studio reorg & cleanup / by Philip Tarlow

ABOVE: before & after the studio reorg

6:34 PM: today a dear friend came over and sealed all 12 wall vents, which had been doing the reverse of what they were intended to do every winter, drawing in cold outside air and pulling out air that had been warmed by my in floor heating, resulting in astronomical propane bills every winter!

as long as he was at it, we rearranged book shelves & painitng tables, so that the studio already looks & feels a lot larger. we through out 2 large trash bages full of garbage. once it’s complete, this reorg will result in a new look & feel and make it a lot easier for me to access my materials & to view the painting i’m adjusting while sitting across the room at my imac.
