Behind the public library

Spending time with the boyfriend, watching epsiodes of The Office, embracing silliness, and loving the dingy atmosphere of the splintered wall we discovered behind the public library.
I've been holed away in the studio for days, working on several new paintings that I can't wait to share with everyone. It's like having a little slice of paradise... my own private sanctuary that literally draws me in and keeps me amongst the faded smell of dusty orange peels and turpentine. And given that I can write and draw there, I spend most of my days staring at the easel, sipping half-empty coffee cups, learning not to clean the messy tubes of paint and dying brushes, sketching on rows of birch wood, and constantly sharpening all the bouquets of well-used pencils. In the meantime, I incessantly update my Facebook page, so if you're interested in seeing progress shots before they make it to the blog, then check it out because it'd be so great to hear your feedback!
