Question about lighting

OK, so I've hung the black drapes and had planned to clamp an inexpensive work light at each end for the 85 watt CFL bulbs. However, the bulbs do not work in the clamp light fixtures I have. I'm sure they're not rated for the equivalent 350 watts that is stated on the bulb package. Do I need to get fixtures like one of these: https://www.1000bulbs.com/category/compact-fluorescent-high-bay-fixtures/

or is some sort of photography setup better? Like this socket: http://www.cowboystudio.com/product_p/ac.htm with this stand: http://www.cowboystudio.com/product_p/w803-flat head.htm Two of these are cheaper than some of the high bay fixtures and more adjustable.

I need to be able to dismantle everything when I'm not painting as I am in a very small apartment. I'm leaning towards the photography setup. Any other suggestions for how you hooked up your lights?

Thanks!
