Summertime


Today was my first day in my new studio (aka our spare bedroom.) It has a larger window, and I loved the extra sunlight. It is still a work-in-progress, but at least, I have a desk in there now. And I can paint!

I hope your week is off to a nice beginning!

Will this be a dedicated studio space? I love that I can leave works out in my (basement) studio and nobody will bother them. I would prefer a spot with more light but I have made my space work for me.

Your painting is lovely too! Those couple of black seeds are just the perfect amount.

What better way to say summer than watermelon, the pieces look gorgeous!!
Glad to hear you're settling in your new studio.

Thank you, girls. My old eyes need the extra light. I hated to give up the bedroom space, but I think that I will really enjoy it.

Kari, yes, it will be dedicated space. I moved from our office to one of the bedrooms. It has a double window with northern exposure. I will miss the bedroom, but I think Mark will enjoy having his office back. :)

Oh, these watermelon slices look so juicy and delicious, Darla! Your new studio space sounds exciting. I'm working on new space also, as we move. Hope you'll share images when it's all done.

SO REALISTIC!!! Perfect color and it looks so juicy! Wonderful work!! When my Dad passed away, I took his room and made it a studio..Even though it's small, it's perfect. Again, love this!!
