It's funny how different it is to work in a space you are not used to. My studio is a small room in my basement where I have great lighting (two lights attached to my easel) and one small window. Most people would not be inspired but I think of it as the opposite of the "French Garret", mine is below ground instead of above. I took a picture and several orbs appeared so, I think maybe I even have angel helpers.
Last week I watched a friend's studio and shop while she was gone. I thought maybe a different environment would be a good change. Her space has large windows and lots of natural light, I was there for 2 hrs. each day for 4 days. The first day I drew and sketched and that went quite well. The next day I began a painting and putzed with it for the next two days. I still have work to do on it but, I think I actually felt homesick for my little underground garret. Odd really the grass, so to speak, or the light is not always greener on the other side. Our comfort zone is where we like to work.
I am a painter of animals. There has always been a connection for me and this is how I share it.
