This is the main working area of my backyard studio. I feel very fortunate to be able to spread out and to have three work areas -- a digital area with two old monitors cranking out the radiation, a drafting table painting area, and a workbench area on the left. Pantone paper over the windows for low-tech control over the light streaming in. Fancy!"
"Painting area with my handy metal cabinet that rolls around to just where it needs to be and holds all of the usual suspects: acrylic paints, brushes, printing inks, rollers, printed papers, sketchbooks, etc."
"Postcards, personal work, and a gift from a young artist in my family populate this area where I cut and paste, frame, and pile up various stuff to be dealt with, eventually."
"Somewhat organized chaos and personal paintings occupy this corner. Also work by a few artists that inspire, including Toni Onley, Tony Fitzpatrick, and Scott Westphal."
"The entry room of the studio holds the books and storage files (out of view), and makes for a nice spot to read over manuscripts and to brainstorm. There's a small blue press for etchings and relief printing in there. The shelves and walls hold a variety of found objects and photos that keep me thinking of the great outdoors and places I've visited."
"Some signs at the studio door, including pick-ups from Japan, Mexico and Italy. And my "world time center" housed in an old typesetter tray (along with ageless rocks and shells that I shouldn't have taken home with me over the years) keeps me in sync with friends, family, and clients, wherever they are." - SK
