My studio is about 50 ft from the house. I am blessed to have my work area so close.
Inside the Finishing Half of the Studio. This half of the studio is where I do most of the painting and final assembly of the pieces.
Multiple works drying between multiple layers of finish.
I mill all of my own wood to achieve the proper dimensions I am looking for in order to create specific artworks.
Open Road and Waters Edge triptych after several finish coats awaiting box frames to be made and fitted.
I usually paint on a simple surface such as this sawhorse and plywood set up.
Sketched out and rough cut beginnings of a Duality Wall piece. These works are made from a solid slab of Mahogany.
Multiple Color Blocks being honed in before surface preparation, gesso and paint.
Using the bandsaw, I rough cut the lumber oversized so I have extra material. This extra material allows me to be able to mill the wood down to my exact specifications for each individual piece.
With proper set up, jointing wood allows for true 90 degree angles to made. This is needed for many of my more linear style works.
Using the planer to mill the wood down to final dimensions.
These pieces of wood are the rough pieces used in my Color Box series. After milling and roughing out on the bandsaw, each piece goes through a four step sanding process utilizing different machines and snapper grits.
