Blessing or a Curse?

my 'thinking or contemplation chair'

Like many painters I'm a huge proponent of painting standing up. I tend to feel as a practice, it helps keep the art energetic and loose. However, a 'thinking chair' set back from the easel can be an invaluable tool. I use mine a lot; while taking a moment to step back and break from the painting, an opportunity to contemplate how the work is going and where it needs to go next.

I have to say however I'm guilty of having a chair that's perhaps a little too comfy. Last few days I've been spending too much time in it and not enough time at the easel!
