Well, the sun finally decided to shine after what seemed like a week of snow! This is a snapshot from our walk this afternoon - now that it's warming up, things are melting and hopefully we'll be able to see more than the top rail of that fence in a few weeks... Anyhow, how's that for the view from my new backyard?
We headed down to Denver this weekend since I had to attend the opening of the Governor's Invitational on Saturday night. While I was down I stopped by Home Depot and picked up some color-corrected lights for my new garage studio. When there is no natural light, I like to hang a couple of 4 foot long 5000K flourescent lightbulbs above my easel - haven't found anything better for accurate color, and the lights are cheap and easy to find (unless you're trying to find them in a small mountain town). Now my studio is all set up and ready to go - I'm looking forward to a productive week of painting!
