This doorknob dates back to my first studio: my bedroom when I lived at Pratt. It was there that I learned the fine art of painting with oils in confined spaces. They gutted my dorm right after I left, so I salvaged my knob, thinking, "Someday, I'll install this on the door of a real studio." In the meantime, I continued to paint in my bedroom. I became an ace at moving my easel to get to my closet, etc, but I have to admit that many of my clothes have streaks of oil on them. As soon as I bought my own home, I installed the doorknob. Here's a shot of the setting sun as it hits the door of my studio.

Various reference materials from other painters often sit along side my sketches while I work on a portrait.

Early morning, my favorite time to work.

The ultmiate studio - painting outdoors in New Mexico. This was taken on Thanksgiving day by a good friend. Could life get any better?
