I put a vintage cotton serape over the painting table to cut down the glare from the varnished surface. It will come off, of course, when I start some fabric painting this afternoon.
There's also a stack of photos that are the beginning of the project after that. I usually have three things going: one requiring handwork (that's "Rescue III"), one in the studio undergoing construction, and one "noodling" in my brain, waiting to clarify itself.
I wanted to get photos of the orderly studio onto the blog, as I doubt it will stay neat for long!
