A Voyeuristic Look into my Garage Studio


I took a break to straighten my back (leaning over that table is getting to me) and to let some of the sloppy areas of my watercolor dry out.  I took a look across my studio and thought I’d snap the picture for any of you who desire the “voyeuristic” look into my playground.

I never had the means to build a magnificent library interior, though my personal library exceeds 2,000 volumes and is scattered across my house, into my garage and into my classroom.  I also never had the means to build the dream studio, but I have taken an attraction to working in this garage during the temperate months of Texas climate (which are quite few).

You can see my antique doors in the background.  These hold my framed watercolors inside my booth tent during festivals.  Out of sight are my bookcases and stereo.  As I write, I have Muddy Waters More Real Folk Blues spinning on the turntable.  I’ve enjoyed his company throughout this morning, along with Rare Earth.

In the foreground, you can probably spot my bottomless cup.  Karl Barth kept his pipe bowl full, Robert Motherwell kept a cigarette burning between his fingers, I keep a cup of coffee steaming at my elbow.

Anyway, time to get back to work (play).  Just wanted you to see the realm that I have laughingly called my Man Cave.  It doesn’t look like much, but I do enjoy the peace and quiet out here, and it was especially sweet last 3 a.m.

Thanks for reading.
