morning light on the studio bench
letting the Book of Honesty pages rest, making samples for the binding & covers
Love this light. I just watched “The Secret Life of Bees” and was caught by the excellent use of light in telling the story, something the book couldn’t do. Light like Honey. xoNancy
I loved both the film and the book! it’s a trick of the light, the glass is a golden yellow but shooting into the sun the room absorbs the golden glow & the glass looks frosted, I love this fragile old house.
I love your high ceiling space. I can imagine you working at that desk, your face bathed in ligiht.
(((Judy))) it’s such a good workspace & I love the long light of autumn
Looks like a Renaissance painting.
I can picture you there, poised/posed as a Vermeer.
oh ha! the crone with the feather earring!
Yes…………….thats exactly the atmosphere…………..
to be able to paint that light… perhaps in the next lifetime!
Beautiful light and always good to peek at the work area!
today is cleaning up the studio space and designing the boards for a variation of the German Bradel binding
Such a lovely place to be working …
(is that a giant lens ???)
it’s a Daylight magnifying lamp, Old Man Crow bought it for me a few years ago when the cheap 12V lights I had used for years just weren’t strong enough for my aging eyes
funny how many of us swoon over the light — me, too! the amber tones. it feels so YOU this still life, somehow.
I love this space so much, even when it was an internal waterfall every time it rained for 18 months until Greg the best handyman/carpenter in the world fixed the flashing & replaced the rotted barge board because the tin had been cut too short the last time it was reroofed, which must have been quite some time ago as our roof is very rusty, the house stays dry these days even when the weather is wild, wet & windy, touch wood!
Funny that the beautiful distressed walls were made by rotting wood and insufficient tin!
I always have a quiet chuckle when I see “distressed” furnishings, cloth and paint finishes, this is the real deal!
