Studio Junk Drawer

Things have been busy around here for the last couple of months, and not just in the studio. It being summer, all those pesky outdoors maintenance projects like deck painting have impinged on my studio time. But I have gotten a few portraits done, managed to get out for some plein air painting, spent a fair bit of time on figure drawing self-study, attended some life drawing sessions, taught a couple of workshops, undertook to edit and publish the first newsletter for Firnew Farm Artists’ Circle, had two pieces juried into the Second Annual Piedmont Virginian Artist Showcase, and filled a few more pages in my sketchbooks. The little gallery below shows some of this recent work.

There are several commissions/commitments in my queue, a workshop coming up in early August, and still many square feet of deck boards to paint so the rest of the summer will be just as busy!
