Teaching Studio Update

Changes are happening in the teaching studio as I am getting closer to the first class beginning. Above you see the general room so far.  Floor is painted, and walls and ceilings are being patched, too. It is interesting how the room seems to grow or shrink in size with each change.

The teaching studio is part of a newer addition to the home. A unique feature is the original window in the former exterior wall of the old house. The first image is of looking into the window from the stairway and the second is looking from the studio out into the stair and hallways. 

 I need to patch the ceiling.

I removed a closet wall and underneath one of the studs was the original siding from the house. I am leaving this strip to show the old siding, which is near the original window shown above.

This is the present stairway.

This is the current hallway floor.  The floor, when I bought the house, was covered with masonite and linoleum tile.  I will be fixing this up and painting it to match the studio floor, along with fixing trim, etc. I'm looking forward to the first students who will use this space starting January 7

10 Minutes 'Til Sleep: Red Onion

Red onion?!  Why am I drawing a red onion from my bed.  Well, it was sitting on my nightstand.  I was looking at it for another project and somehow I left it on my nightstand.  I can be forgetful and I misplace things often. There was a red onion on my nightstand - so I drew it.

10 Minutes 'Til Sleep: Glasses and Pen

10 Minutes 'Til Sleep is a series of drawings I create from my bed just before falling asleep.  This image is of sunglasses and a pen on my night stand.
