My studio
This is where I have been working the past few months. It is working out quite well especially since it is just down the street from where I live.

This is an example of one of the small paintings I have been working on. I am also working on some other landscape paintings that I consider more “forest paintings” – paintings of the dense woods instead of the more vista type paintings I have been doing. I will most one of them soon – perhaps in progress…
