My work space

A lot of artists work in a studio–I work at my computer desk.  I used to have a studio space in the basement and in the garage when I was using oils but nowadays I am working with watercolors and find that working at my desk with a photo on the monitor does the trick.  I also carry a small watercolor tablet with me so I can do my doodles when I am out.   Usually I don’t paint it or ink it until I get home though I try to keep my ink pen and a small case of watercolors with me, just in case.

The kids often sit on the floor nearby while I am working, working on their own watercolors or in work books.  They also run in constantly showing me their latest projects.  (Shamus’ desk is behind mine, across the room.  Poor guy gets to deal with our constant interruptions while he is trying to concentrate.)

Busy-ness

Busy preparing lessons for the art class.  Well, that and watching movies with the kids (watched part of Camelot–the cheesy version, all of Overview of America by the John Birch Society–a great overview of political systems, and then Mr. Nice Guy–the kids and I LOVE JAckie Chan).    And cleaning up messes, including my own–even my desk, which happens so seldom that I posted pictures over at Elasah.com.
