New Studio in Jenner

I've been in the new studio for just over a month now and it's fantastic.  I still have to get a few things (mainly a door to separate the workshop from the main studio area so I don't coat everything in sawdust again) but it's very comfortable and funtional.  I'm excited about the work I've been doing here and will be posting it soon but for now here are some images of the space and the view.

Leaving Windy Lane

I left my studio on Windy Lane about a month and a half ago.  I loved the space and was sad to leave as I worked hard putting it together and spent countless hours painting there.  But as sad as I was to move, Clare and I found a place just up the coast in Jenner with detached studios for both of us.  I have insulation in my studio now, old wood floors and a view of the Russian River and Pacific, I feel very lucky to be here.  Since I can remember one of my biggest goals in life was to end up living and painting near the ocean and now I can hear the waves crashing while sitting at my easel.

Here are a few images from just before the move and some from after the space was cleared out.
