I've been working on a series of sketches of my studio.  Come on in and have a look around.

My drawing desk is my planning center.  I make a lot of sketches here and plan future paintings.

                  I have a separate table set aside for creating paintings in acrylic and casein.

Here's my watercolor table.  This is where I make many of the sketches that appear on this blog.  Note the big windows behind the table.  They look out on my back yard and provide steady north light throughout the year.  Right now I'm waiting for the azaleas out there to bloom -- just a few more weeks!
My watercolor sketching kit is pretty minimal.  That makes it easy to carry .....and use!

I've always got coffee going in the studio, but I keep tea and hot chocolate handy too.

My matting and framing center was handmade for me by a local craftsman.  What a godsend it is!  It holds loads of matboard and all my tools, and it's just the right height for cutting mats and assembling frames.
