A Tulip's Shadow

oil on board 6.5"x 6"

I moved into a new studio last week, a space in an industrial building that was once a pants factory. There are about thirty other businesses here, such as a private detective and a kombucha manufacturer, a hair salon and a karate studio. I feel so at home here. The building has such strong bones yet beautiful details. 

This is my first painting completed in my new space, a single tulip on an industrial windowsill, casting an evocative shadow. 

Here's a photo of my space before I moved in. It looks to me almost like an art school classroom. 


  1. Congratulations on your new space. Hoping to find something (someday) for myself too, but looks like you got yourself a nice space! The tulip is beautiful.

    1. Thank you Lauren. I'm happy with the size. There could be more windows, but I can make it work.

  2. I like the way you described the building. I can tell you will produce exceptional work in it.
    Congratulations and may you enjoy many successful years there.
    Love the tulip, but then I love all your work!
