24 February 2016 - My new work station! Switched my easel to the north end of the large room in the studio next to a row of windows and under a great skylight. Had been working near a southern exposure - glare, reflected light - not good. Now I don't have to adjust for the glares, my palette is well lit and I will be able to mix my colors more accurately! Sometimes it takes me a while! Am excited to see what happens next! DC
