Recently it feels as though I have spent much more time working on smalls than the larger paintings I typically focus on. And it has been therapeutic. What I love about the smalls is that I can work on them anywhere but I especially like seeing them on my work table in my studio. This painters' drop cloth has been a necessary part of my studio equipment for many years and I'm loving how it looks with all the layers of colour that it has received through time and use. There is something special about new tools, but I think the older, worn items are even better, full of character and a history. And these four little cabins look so pretty on this backdrop.
