Yellow House

'About time a pastel painting showed up here, huh? This is one of a pair of paintings done on 16" squares of Richeson board. They are both based on observed house scenes in my immediate Vermont neighborhood. I used the actual places as merely a jumping off place, making the transition from actual to "my version" via a series of pencil sketches. 

As always, thanks for looking and taking the time to comment.

Studio Lookin' Good

I think my new studio in Brattleboro will always look this organized. There is no room to have anything out of place. Chaos can come to this little room in about 5 minutes. So far, so good.

Those of you who saw it "before" can appreciate these "after" photos. Notice the cheery new rug!

But the best thing of all is the paper flat file (under table on right side of lower photo). After spending way too much time and energy chasing down used flat files all over the northeast I had one custom made by Greg Goodman Cabinetmaker here in Brattleboro. He made a utilitarian and mighty fine looking piece that works like a charm. I should say it is the second best thing.

The best is my husband who is not in the photo but several of my older pieces of studio furniture which were made by him are. He had the brilliant idea to ask Greg to make the file. I couldn't have done it without Michael. Thanks, honey. (But he didn't pick out the rug!)

Now I can get down to work which as you can see I am doing.
