Studio corner

This past weekend was the first weekend of the 2012 Portland Open Studios tour. I worked on this study of the studio corner while a slow but steady stream of folks perused my recent oil paintings and sketchbooks.

Thanks everyone who came by or checked my website. I’m looking forward to the second weekend of the tour.

Studio Pictures

I always like to see  pictures of other people’s studios so I thought I’d post a couple of mine.

I have been working, for years in a space in the back of our garage. The space was narrow, dark and cold. We expanded it into a really great office/studio space.

In the old space, if I needed a light I nailed a scrap of wood to the ceiling and clipped a light to it. There’s abundant natural light in the new space and track lights as well, In fact it’s challenging to learn how to manage all this light.

These 2 pictures were taken from opposite corners of the room.
