Studio Update

My office computer is in total meltdown this week (one of the drives crashed). Fortunately, it hasn't affected my ability to paint, but it has made it difficult to get the kinds of in-progress images I'd like to be showing you.  What I thought I'd share is an image of the start of a small piece.  I paint my smallest pieces at a separate workstation from my main easel - it's actually a large desk - and there is space on the brick for whatever small object I happen to be working from.
