I finally found the best place in my house to paint.... and it's not in the studio. I love the natural light that I get in the back of the house... (I have LOTS of windows, but they aren't facing the right direction in the studio). The breakfast room does NOT get used that much, either, so I think I'll set up there, when I can. I kind of discovered this while my granddaughter was sleeping in the studio, and I had to look for another place... ha !
The silver water pitcher was an idea I got from a still life a fellow plein-air painter set up a couple of weeks ago. I loved the reflections she got in her painting.... Thanks, Dawn !
