My studio is located at my home inside an attached barn. Our home is a mid 1800’s farmhouse located in a country setting about 6 miles from downtown Auburn.
The studio has heat set at just over 50 degrees – when I’m there working I use a wood stove to get it warmer. And I like it warm – commonly 80 or so in the winter. Great to be in there working in shirt sleeves, when outside the wind is howling a wind chill that could take your breath away.
A break from the cold of winter. Warmer times of year, the studio is close to whatever the outside temperature is. If it’s hot and humid – the fan gets turned on. No AC in here.
A few photos from inside the studio.
The current still life set-up. This is a small one being painted alternately with a very large commission. I find having a small still life set up like this is a great break from the intensity of a large complex composition.
A little closer….

A few frames waiting for a picture….. I will sometimes touch-up or repaint a frame to better suit the painting (frame lower left is undergoing this treatment).
The all important audio – visual items…. Usually music is going……
