There is something very special about showing off a creative work space not often open for view. A studio is normally a private place where an artist can relax with ideas, experiments, processes, failures and successes - a place of many internal conversations. So, to open it up to friends and strangers is quite a change of pace. But there is a sweet reward for all the organizing, cleaning, preparations - the pride of presenting to others one's own art on one's own studio walls in one's very own personal space.
Here are a few pictures:
