Studio Pics

I thought it would be fun to share a few pictures from my "studio" which is currently just a corner in my kitchen!

Wall of stacked paintings.

The large studio paint box, where you will find mostly Gamblin, Charvin, Old Holland, Williamsburg, and Vasari oil paints.

I feel like a chemist mixing up the varnish.

Stretching linen.

All finished.

Easel in the living room!


The backyard studio wall! I built it nice and large, 8x8 feet, to be able to fit the mixed media pieces on and have a vertical working surface for the finishing stages.

The newest palette additions, straight from NYC!

HWS/The Broad

Here are a few shots from Hauser, Wirth, and Schimmel, The huge new gallery in town.
Signing the guestbook, notice the John Baldessari signature above mine!

There will be a restaurant to the left opening this summer.

Old industrial doors.

The space is a former flour factory, notice the ornamental stalks of wheat!

I finally made it The Broad, where I was so excited to see this wonderful El Anatsui piece. He was always a huge influence on me and my artistic output.
