As much as I enjoy a little holiday, I enjoy time spent in my studio so much more. We extended our little 'vacation' by sightseeing in our own back yard, spending time hiking at Lake Louise, visiting Heritage Park in Calgary, and a few little drives around the countryside to see all the changes happening around us. Now I'm back to working on five larger canvases (with another biggie on its way) and several smalls and this is how I like it. Though the room I work in is tiny, the light is nice and I have all the space I need...as long as I can move things around while I work, it's all good. Many works in progress head to different rooms (and outside) to see where they are headed, to guide me a bit in decisions to make, and to view them in different light. Plus, it allows me to step further away from them to see any adjustments in form, colour or any additions that are required. It also gives me time to allow my imagination to soar, away from the studio, in order to envision what is yet to come.
