Here's what's on the easel right now, a façade from Lille, France. After a while of working on those teensy door and window frames though my eyes feel dazzled and it's time to work on some drawings.
Most of my pieces are small but this one is even smaller than most at about 3"x5". It may get bigger, I haven't decided how to finish it yet.
Occasionally I pick up pieces of old lace when I go with my mom to vide greniers in her area but I haven't been using them lately so they were scattered, bits tucked away here and there along with other flotsam and jetsam. The other day I thought maybe I'd use some precious sunlight house to re-organise the studio but after working away for a couple hours it didn't look terribly different so I abandoned the effort and went back to painting.

This was my favourite shote walking home from a horse fair, a most adorable pony tired at the end of a long day.
Although I don't own a horse I come from a long line of horse people and enjoy going to the fairs when I'm near one.

WIP. A smaller variation on a previous piece. Mixed media, 8"x8" on wooden panel.
In the studio are a few pieces I'm having trouble finishing, the biggest one because I'm not sure which way to go with part of the composition, and a few smaller ones like this that just need some final tweaking.
The door a few down from my mom's. The oldest records for this stretch of houses are from the 1590's because previous ones were destroyed when the town was sacked a couple decades before.

Work in progress, acrylic on canvas. The actual statue playing the lute stands at the entrance to one of the mazes at Hever Castle (where Anne Boleyn grew up).
