Two years ago I had a very stressful job and decided to return to oil painting. I had been doing watercolors all these years but had never had the space to commit to larger works. So I decided to experiment and converted a shack in my Sacramento yard into a studio. The pieces I completed during this time reflect the beautiful sunlight of the region.
An 80 square feet shack soom became too small, so when we returned to the Bay Area my partner and I looked for a garage I could use. The home we eventually found had a very old, termite ridden garage, which we remodeled. I went from 80 to 400 sq feet, which was the maximum my budget allowed.
