Studio shots

photos of stuff i'm working on...

Ye Olde Elm Tree

These are of an awesome old elm tree that supposedly was planted by the original owner of Ragdale -Howard Van Doren Shaw
You can't do better than the lines and shapes found in old trees like this!- a lot of the imagery in the prints and drawings on wood I'm doing are based on these photos.

Lake Forest benches

More images to add to my visual encyclopedia of benches!

Walk to the Lake

I've been able to walk to Lake Michigan a few times since I've been here, it's only a few miles away and it's been a great way to clear my head. It was so nice to hear and see the water, there was no one around so I had the whole beach to myself.

So Far So Awesome!

Can't believe I've already been here 1 week! Photos above are my studio on the first day, all nice and organized. It now looks like a total disaster area! I'll post photos tomorrow. The window is what I see when I open my eyes in the morning-not too shabby.
