The Art Shack

I guess every artist needs a place to retreat to work in. I am amazed by some artist's jaw dropping studios.

I have been recently hospitalized for post cancer reconstructive surgery. No big deal. It was a good time to hang out with other sick people and to exchange funny life stories. Little did I anticipate what was happening behind the scenes.

L. (otherwise known as Mamma Bear), cleaned out our garden shed and had a friend lay down a nice laminate floor. He installed a 3rd window and put in pot lights and turned it into a little personal 'gallery-workshop' on the lake.

When I got home, Mamma Bear, completed the transition by helping me move my art gear out into my own private workshop.

Now. How lucky can a man be?

  1. That's cool, Winston. I would love a little office like this. Can you show us inside?

  2. Looks like a creative zone to me, hope some masterworks are created here.
