Back in the Studio!

Now, with cooler weather here, my plein air gear is in limbo. 
I'll be doing more work in the studio.
Today's is "Star Pear."
Thanks to Barb, who loaned me the photo.
I love the reflections and the shadows!
This was fun to paint.

OPEN STUDIO
was an amazing success!
(photos below)
~
Everyone that came, left with something they loved.
We all had a great time laughing and visiting.
~
LizzyT's repast was to die for!!
Yum, I love truffles!
~
Not only did 6 large paintings fly out the door from our fun raffle,
but several were purchased, and one commission is planned.
~
Prior to the event, I made all these tags 
for each painting (well over 100).
Four floors of paintings!
~
The next set of photos is from the entranceway and on into the livingroom:

~
The one above the piano, to the left, with a dark frame,
is actually Maddie's!
I just love looking at it!
~
Yes, the kitchen and dining room were full of paintings and
scrumptious goodies as well!
I just didn't get photos of that area.
~
These on the stairway up from the entryway, to the bedroom area,
are from the Marian Exhibit at UD a couple of years ago.
~
This one is a partial area of the upstairs hallway.
~
 Across from the hallway paintings, one can enter the guest bath,
where I have most of my Marblehead, and Block Island paintings:
~
 Down the hall, the master bedroom.
Many lovely paintings here!
This is just two walls.
There are more!
~
 Above our dresser,
I have a misty, fog series:
~
Back downstairs, to the family room, one can see many more!


~
And, once you get to the bottom most level,
The actual studio space:
~
Of course, this is all "spiffed up" for Open Studio.
The studio during working hours, is not arrayed 
in such finery!
~
I hope you enjoyed your little visit!

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing so many pieces of lovely art in your home setting. Of course I will enjoy my new Lakeside Artist painting on a daily basis in my own home. You know how I have always liked that one! Thank you for inviting me.

    1. Thanks, Ruth Ann,

      Yes, this IS a bit of a job.
      But, honestly: the house is now clean and decorated beautifully. We just put up the Christmas tree in the living room. All ready for the holidays. I must say, early November is a good time for this event!

    1. Wondered where you were! Missed you!!!
      You'll have to pop in and see the walls in person.
