I share a large studio with artist, Chuck Gumpert, and dog, Blue.  It's a beautiful, inspiring space where I feel lucky to create.  Often, I wander the gardens first bringing in whatever has just bloomed to help set my palette for the day.  It's amazing how the textures, colors and forms I see right before entering the studio affect what goes directly onto the canvas.  Nature is my dominate source.
