Each year at this time, I rearrange the studio furniture to make additional space for our Christmas Eve family gathering. Here is a photo of my new compact painting area. In the foreground is my Hughes easel for oil and behind it is my pastel area - old Mabef easel with Artist's Air filter
I just started a new painting based on a reference photo my mother took
years ago. Isn't that about the worst reference photo you've ever seen? My best guess about the scene is that there was some flooding from the Green River and my ever-curious mother drove around Auburn, Washington and took photos with her ancient little camera. More about that on my Golden Years blog.
