Back in the Studio

After 9 weeks away from home, I'm back in the studio this week. I can't tell you how delicious it is to walk back into the Continental Gin Building, open the door to my studio and take in the sights and smells of creative possibility.

My summer journey west took me through the Rockies of Colorado, the wilds of Eastern Oregon, the Central Coast of California, and home to Dallas via the wide open landscapes of Southern Utah and Northern New Mexico. During my trip I soaked up all sorts of inspiration (a took lots of photos) to bring back into the studio (like the one below). 

This week I'm diving into a few new commissions and finishing a couple of house portraits. I'm also prepping my studio for the Continental Gin's upcoming Open Studio event. I, along with all of the other artists in the building, will be opening our studios on October 20 from 6-10pm and 21 from 2-8pm. It was absolutely necessary to take some time away, but now I'm ready for the exciting work that lies ahead this fall.
