Painting During Covid

7th October 2020

I do like the ownership, the taking stock and the changes of perspective that the process of painting a room can create. I had finished the undercoat - Johnstone's Pure Brilliant White Matt - the day before and was now doing the first of two top coats, Hay by Farrow and Ball. When I got to this corner I took time out to write the poem and then adapted it by speaking it out. The refrain of 'I've got time for this now' was inspired by the line 'I ain't got time for that now' in the Talking Heads song Life During Wartime.
