Down These Stairs


Down these stairs is my studio. I call it that because that is where I work. It is in "slight" disarray: it may not be neat, but I know where everything is--mostly. When I am working on a piece, I work in what I call an archeological style: I dig through layers to find the treasure. Sometimes I find other treasures along the way. One friend calls it, "stirring the pot." Or, as A.A. Milne said, "One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries."

Stay tuned for my next posting to see the whole thing. Until then, let your imagination go wild.
