in the studio

This is the door to my studio today. Cold and windy with bright sunshine.

I started a new painting and finished two that I had been working on.  I didn't clean up for the photos, this is the what it looks like when I am working. My studio houses things that I collect along the way. I find so much inspiration in nature, and tend to save stuff. The perfect knot of wood, a jaw bone that's bleached white, a dried seed pod. There are snake skins and turtle shells and butterfly wings.

There is a table with scraps of paper, maps, books, pictures.

There is a riot of tissue in a cabinet.   This is where I work.
