What a mess!

This is our studio!  I have a weekend workshop coming up and I have got to get this place cleaned up!  I have to get still life set ups ready, clear the floor space, have the model stand ready for our model and just thought I'd show you some "before" photos.    
If I remember I will take some "after" photos and post them.  We have a lot of fun in these workshops.  They are small, anywhere from 5 to 8 artists, and it's easier to get to know each other. 

One of my corners.

Along the back wall of my end.  I am preparing to shoot a new instructional DVD.  You can see my prepping on the the two easels.

And there is Ray!  He gets one side and I get the other.  The wood stove is sort of the dividing line.
We have Sirius radio and a flat screen to keep some noise going.  I'll have to clean his side up too! 

This view is off to Ray's right.  I think that's Benny in the doorway peering out!  We have two Shi- Tzus that I adore!  Benny and Auggy.

And another view of my side.  I have got tons of "teaching tools" on those shelves I have no idea what I will do with them! 


  1. Hmmmm. And I thought my studio space was a train wreck. :)

  2. Peggi: I'm so grateful for your posts. They are so generous and I just love seeing the new information. What kind of paper do you use for your gouache paintings? My paper is curling on me. Thank you! Happy new year. Laurie Rossi

  3. As much as I loved this post I was THRILLED to read that you are shooting more videos - yahoooo! I have ALL your videos and have literally worn some of them out :). I was just telling my husband the other day - I really wish Peggi would make some more videos!

  4. HI Peggi, Just found your blog!! so excited to see your posts and pictures.. Oh my, you are an inspiration along with Hawthorne these past days! Thanks for sharing!!
