Creative clutter...

A clean studio is a bad sign when it comes to creativity, at least in my world. Nothing to fear these days!! The piles of resource photos, paint testing sheets, mock-ups, and assorted flotsam that have appeared over the past two weeks are getting more precarious by the minute and I couldn't be happier.

As you can see, I'm working on still-lifes right now. Look for more of my little goofy ducks in new and (even) sillier roles!! Here they are, just hanging around waiting for the next photo shoot. Although I set them down without planning, they look like they're eagerly awaiting the next proof to come off the printer.


  1. Those little ducks are so cute, will look forward to seeing what they get up to! I am also pleased that i am not the only one with a messy workspace!

  2. Hey Amanda -- nice to know other artists share this messy=creative gene!! Congrats on your acceptance into the NWS show too!!!

  3. Chris, is that first photo a painting? It looks some some trompe l'oile pieces I've seen and thought you might be getting into that. Looking forward to seeing more of these little duckies, too :)

  4. Hi Rhonda! Not a painting -- just a pile of working materials, but you may recognize Ruddy Duck in the foreground. ;-D

    I'm using the print of Ruddy to check color relationships as I plan out a complicated painting.


Stop in and say hello!!
