Over the past several years the studio had become a disaster area. I went through a couple of years of Cancer problems and last year was relegated to painting the winter in the living room with my busted up foot. Those things along with the gallery that takes care of 8-9 months of the year where I actually do my painting at the gallery. The studio became a throw-all and was in definite need of being overhauled. Since Christmas that is exactly what I have been doing. It is only half finished but upon the urging of my good artist friend, Pattie Wall, I am going to show where I currently am. Check out the newly built studio Pattie has.
This view is from the NW corner looking at my drafting table where I do 90% of my painting. My pallette with paint storage. I use a metal tool storage cabinet for this with a built in top for mixing paint. On to the right is computer, desk, printer, scanner.

Looks like a very busy spot, Gary. I love working on my drafting table too. I inherited mine from my younger brother who passed away from lung cancer just a year ago. It's an honor for me to work on it. He was a pretty talented guy himself although he never did anything with his talent except create things that pleased him for his home. He was a very simple man.

What a great storage idea on the art mags under the tilt of the drawing table!

thanks for the peek into your studio! I have spent the last few days cleaning mine up again. Have to do that between big projects or I go crazy. Although "clean" to me doesn't mean clean to someone else ;). Ya know...that crazy kind of creative clean lol. Anyway, nice to see where you work, and I spied your flat files, I am officially jealous!
