The artist’ studio II

Studio 2

Studio 2

I  received word Monday that “Boomer” made it to his new home and was well appreciated. It’s always a relief to hear that a picture arrived safely and that they feel I captured the essence of the animal on paper.

After finishing the two dog portraits, I’m now back to the artist Ruth Laxson’s second studio building. I’m working on the same size board as the first one so the two will be a matching set. Both buildings are small, intimate structures so it works out well.  This one has board and batten siding painted in an almost robin’s egg blue and a tar paper roof.  As you can see, it has large colonial style windows on two sides. It, too, is nestled in her wooded and flowered back yard, only about 15′ away from the first one. At one time they held her printing presses, but now, sadly, she is no longer able to work.  You should look her up on the net and see what a wonderful artist she is.  she has quite the name in lexicographical artwork.
