Grinding pigments with mortar and pestle; some of my paints and brushes. I paint with oils, acrylics, watercolors in tubes, gouche, tempera, watercolor in jars and pans,dry pigments; and "powdered pastels"; and I draw and sketch with pencils, inks, charcoals, polychrome, watercolor in sticks.
My dip pens and nibs that I draw with intermittently. I have to be sitting at my drawing table to use these because it requires dipping the pen in inks and then into water when finished the strokes.
Some of my brushes, and brush cleaning solvents.
This is my photo of the oil painting I began last night and am letting background dry in some before continuing. I have not quite decided what I want to paint on it but I wanted a red background.
This is my corner studio office in my "home office" in my apt in Missouri with the oil painting I was painting. I have three areas in my apt designated as artist's corner and I use all of them but for different purposes. I sketch and draw and paint sketches at my drawing table. I paint with oils and acrylics on my easel from Italy, and I photograph on my giant easel by propping items against my portable drawing board. I also draw with pencils often while "watching tv" in that same corner.
This is my signature as I signed it on the oil painting "Japanese Nurse".
This is my photo of a cross in thread that I realized today and just photographed for fun. I love tapestries and have a wall hanging tapestry and a chair cushion tapestry. I think those people who create art with threads are amazing.
This is the U S flag I photograph intermittently as I walkabout, placed here to remind all I am a U S citizen with first amendment liberties.
This is my hand holding one of my Southern Baptist christian crosses to remind all that I am a born again believer in JESUS the Messiah, and live by the King James Holy Bible as it is written.
