Where Bloggers Create Studio Tour


I am on vacation in England right now, but I wanted to Join in the wonderful Where Bloggers Create studio tour anyway. Greetings visitors! I’m pleased that you stopped by.

I have changed a few things around since the last studio tour I participated in two years ago. This is what my studio looked like then.

I have rearranged the room a little bit and taken down the colorful wallpapers for the time being. IMG_0519Like many of you, my studio is also the guest bedroom. Since I am having a string of visitors this summer, the beds are set up for company.IMG_0528 These pictures are from my studio, when I was setting out costume dresses for my Jane Austen party this spring.IMG_0522


Because my room is set up and waiting for the next guest, we had a makeshift studio in the breakfast nook. Here I am, in the black shirt, painting a still life with another friend in the room just off my kitchen.




We wanted to do some plein air painting, but when the day turned out rainy I put together a still life for us to paint.

And the finished project from that afternoon……IMG_0958
