objects in my studio


This is a doll made by Megan Whitmarsh, it hangs on one of my light fixture that WILL eventually be painted orange, or red. This was made around 1990-ish, and was a gift. Sorry Megan if the lady looks grim, its just the lighting, it is actually quite cheery up there.

there are rabbits in my studio


I got this pink rabit a while ago, I'm sure it was from Amos center, back in my pink art days... I like its pink on pink look.
And yes it has two ears.
And yes, It is a fuzzy rabbit bank.
And yes that is the Bob Ross, The Joy of Painting Book.
And yes, that is the Guide to Wildflowers and Ferns of Kentucky book...
because you never know....
