and here is a photo of my studio (working area).
i built the studio in 2003, two years after my wife and i moved to our home in west sonoma county.
it also serves as a guest house -- full kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and very large sun deck -- with a foldout couch for couples with kids. it takes about an hour to convert the studio for guests.
i work at a large wooden table (the largest table i could find commercially, 4' x 8'). all the paints are in stackable dishes that pile into a plastic chest for storage, and voilà, the room is ready for a sitdown feast.
here everything is messed up with work, and i've got the image projector mounted vertically to prepare a series of small format landscapes from a recent photo expedition.
