When I paint in my studio I always listen to music, sometimes Eagon and Braude, on NPR, but always the radio or my Itunes play list. Watercolors I paint on the kitchen island, we have a kitchen tv, (that's kinda sad isn't it) but I enjoy it.
I dvr all kinds of movies and Jon Stewart, I paint and listen, Back in May I DVR The Normal Heart on HBO, Never did get around to watching it all summer, but a couple days ago I did.
It was haunting, who knew Matt Bomer could act, Jim Parson was great, and Mark Ruffalo is always great. The worse performance was Julia Roberts. It was haunting that's all I can say. Thank goodness no one has rolodex's any more, I don't think I could see one with out shedding some tears.
