Here are some photos of the newest addition to my family, Dexter, the Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. He was only 1.5 pounds when I first adopted him. Today, he’s six months old and about 6 lbs. What a cutie pie. Photos courtesy of Kari Corbin photography.
This lovely lady is Mary, my German Shepherd mix. She’s camera shy, so getting good pictures of her is especially challenging. Photos courtesy of Kari Corbin photography.
Here are some fall photos of my Corgi mix, Marty. Photos courtesy of Kari Corbin Photography.
Here are some pictures of my Yorkie, Steve, enjoying the fall garden. The last photo shows Steve doing what he does best–stealing one of my props.
The deck off of my studio is small, but I still find ways to load it up with color. It’s a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or iced tea and watch the dogs play in the garden.
Nothing better than taking a break from painting to take in this view. I designed this patio, and my brother, sister-in-law, nephew, niece, daughter, and I did all the heavy digging, lifting, placing of bricks, and planting. It was lots of work performed twice a year–spring and fall–over the past three years but the results have been well worth the effort. It’s fun watching my five dogs play or just mill around the garden while I cook or paint. Plus it makes for some awesome photo ops of my dogs (more on that later).
I’ve chosen the kitchen as my studio because lots of fabulous food is generated (and eaten) here, it’s sunny and warm, it has a great view of my garden (more on that in my next post), it has great lighting, and its open layout allows me to chat with my daughter and mother while I work. Plus, the large table provides plenty of room to spread out and a place for other would-be artists to join in on the fun (like my 5-year-old niece, Dani, who’s visiting today).
Here are a few shots of my kitchen studio.
