In the Studio

New to the studio, a rustic metal easel I found during recent trip to Atlanta

Conveniently sized for a painting that has been sitting around the studio, homeless just resting on a shelf

Study of a conch shell...painted from life during a workshop I attended a few years back.  Subject of painting and rest of my shell collection below.  Themselves, natural works of art 




"One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach; one can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few"
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh
