My Home Away From Home

my new studio space
The Golly Bard studio had officially moved about two hundred feet from home. 
The commute is killing me. Just kidding! I love walking to work and being so close to home.

trees in progress
My dear friends who own an interior design studio in a beautifully restored church offered me this great opportunity and I jumped at the chance. It's wonderful to work in the company of such creative people.
The natural light is fabulous for painting and I couldn't be happier.

palette and trees
I'm still settling in and organizing my things, but I started working right away.
 Two large forests of trees will be in my shop for the weekend.

Puty: The light is wonderful - even on grey days.

Vivienne: Thank you so much. Happy Friday!

Lasso: Thank you. It used to be our old dining table and it hasn't been used for years. We brushed off the dust and cleaned it up. It's a great work table.

Maga: Thank you. It's a shared space, which is very open. I'm trying to keep my little corner simple and workable.
