Back In the Studio
The past weekend was warm enough that I could work in my unheated studio. It was glorious to be back in there and able to get into painting again. But first I did a bit of house-cleaning, which is necessary after everything has been sitting for 5 months. I found some old work as I was dusting and vacuuming. I don't usually do landscapes, and this is one of the few exceptions. It is an oil painting, not very big (11x14), showing scenery typical of where I live in the country.
I did this painting at the same time, about 3 or 4 years ago. This is a field not far from my place. I like it because of the ghost of a road that pulls your eye into the space. However, this painting and the one above are my only attempts to do scenary and I decided it was not really my thing.
I also found this little (5x7) chalk pastel drawing that I had done last year. Much more typical of my work.
And here is a view of my studio after I had finished cleaning and was starting to work, with my easel on the left and my drawing table on the right. This used to be Peter's sculpure studio but I had it fixed up and re-built last year so I could work in it. Don't you think it's fabulous? So light and airy and inviting.
