Here is a photo of the studio I worked in for thirteen years (before that, I was a potter, and when I started doing freelance work and painting I used an upstairs tiny bedroom in the house).

|Exterior is insulated and strapped, shingles are going up.
Here is a brief tour of the studio after the first day of working in it.
