More Updates

This is an older painting from last year - or maybe the year before. But it's the new star on my business card. I have been working on a website which is finally up and running and so now I can get some new cards made. This seemed like a cheery, summery image for the new card. If you want to check out my website it is I hope you take a look and enjoy it!

Studio Update

Still on the updating. This is my new framing and shipping area. I got this workbench at Menard's and put it together one Saturday morning. It's made life much easier for both tasks. I have all my framing materials on the left and my shipping materials on the right. The carpet on the bench surface keeps my frames from getting scratched. The drawers are marvelous for keeping all the small hardware in! Now I just have to get back to painting!

Studio Update

This is a drawing board that was on it's way to the dump before a friend of mine rescued it. It had been twice as long as this but was in two pieces when he got it. He has one in his wife's studio and I got the other one. It's very handy!

Studio Update

Summer has finally arrived here in central Wyoming and with it I've arrived at a few decisions. First, is this great addition to my studio!

Since returning to pastels and still doing oils I had quite a mess in the studio. Too many things piled in too many places and always feeling like I couldn't move without tripping over something. I went in search of a dresser to store everything in and found this great piece of furniture! You'd think it was made to order. As you can see, I have a place for both my pastel palette (on the left) and my oil palette. There's plenty of room to store my supplies for each and my photo references are in the bottom drawer. (The little red table and chair to the left are for the budding artists in my life).

It feels great to work in this space now. I have room to breathe and think about what I'm doing. It's much more relaxing. I no longer have things shouting at me for attention every time I go into the studio. It's a place I want to be in, which makes all the difference in the world when it comes time to create! I hope you're creating too!
