Acrylic on Canvas     48x36

Sometimes when it's too expensive to hire a model yet I want to paint from life, the studio is a perfect place to find inspiration. In addition to finding great verticals and horizontals for composition, every square inch is full of possibility: interesting supplies, hanging/stacked paintings, various artist accessories, musical instruments and even some stuffed birds from my early days as an exhibits designer/muralist/taxidermist at our Natural History Museum. These are some examples (all painted from life 1-4 weeks).

What fun - and what a great space! I love your light patterns falling across the floor and up the wall - the paintings, too.

Last year my sister-in-law took your class at kanuga and said you were a wonderful teacher. I can see by your blog, especially the 'thumb' lesson, that you have a teacher's heart for sure. So glad i found your blog to enjoy.
