I've been painting on flat canvas these days. This means the canvas is unstretched, so the painting would have to be framed. These paintings are approximately 16x20, and are very affordable. Shipping is also less because they are rolled into a tube, instead of packaged in a large box.

A Temporary Lighting Solution?

As you know, I am organizing my home office. I'm showing you little glimpses at a time, as it is not even close to being finished. I have painted my big brown desk, and have cleared it of most of the things that were cluttering it up. I removed an old lamp, as I wanted something a little different.

I had these old rusted out candle holders forever, and I attached clamp lights from the hardware store. I had this set up purely for functional purposes for when I take photos of my paintings. One has a fluorescent white light and the other has an incandescent bulb. They are growing on me and my 8 year old thinks they are "cool", so I am keeping them in there for a while.

Have a great Monday everyone!

School Days

The children are all back in school now. It's time for me to get back in the studio! I also have a lot of home freshening up projects I'm working on. See my first Craigslist purchase above? I love that old school desk/chair. I'm not wild about the orange oak. I'm thinking of painting or staining it....

Office Organization

I'm in the middle of trying to organize my home office. What a mess! I'm working on organizing the closet right now. Here are some photos that have inspired me:

This next one isn't a closet, but it is a small space. So organized and pretty!

If I ever get done with my office, I will show you some before and afters. It will probably be a before and during though, as life always gets in the way, and I can't seem to ever complete a project! :)

Joan Mitchell

I love the art of abstract expressionist painter Joan Mitchell. There is so much depth and feeling in her work.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!
