My studio

Since I'm going to Gary's pottery studio this afternoon with the lovely and talented Ben, and since Gary always blogs everything immediately, and there might even be a link back to here, I figure I should have a more presentable current post than last night's quote of amusing-yet-questionable merit.

So, this is my studio, with new paintings in progress.  I love this space, it's way upstairs in my house, and gets sun all afternoon.  There's a beautiful view out over the valley too.  As for the paintings, these are the first of the new pieces for the Korova show, the ones with the gel medium I was typing about a few days ago.  The muse is being very kind and present this week, creativity comes in waves and this one is a tsunami.  (I dream about gigantic waves all the time, I love those dreams and perhaps they are related.)  I can't wait to get upstairs and start painting again.

A good book on tape helps too.  I'm listening to More Tales of the City.

SO glad things are going well!

I've been hearing more-than-usual skipping up and down those wooden stairs to your art room this week, which makes me very happy: it's a great room and shouldn't be neglected!

Humph! No cats visible anywhere.

The cats were probably lurking under the big desk which you can't see off to the right. Or downstairs being up to no good.
