This is the crafting corner of my kitchen that I mentioned in the other blog entry. On a sunny day it gets so nice and bright in there and I dont need much in the lines of overhead lighting. There's a door to the spare bedroom farther to the right. I used to have my crafts set up in there but it became a "out of sight out of mind" issue with me and since I was hoping to make stuff to sell, it didnt do any good to leave it in there. Besides that room got too hot and the light didnt hit the room until later afternoon....plus it hit the projects all on the wrong side (a shadow from my hand would be cast on the piece). Top things off I wanted the stereo for kitchen work AND for painting. I could always roll the stereo into the spare room if I really wanted to but I also dont want the "kids" coming in that room (it's the only pet free room in the whole house). Cant close the door because the plug on that wall (the wall between the kitchen and the spareroom) is located in the kitchen which means cords in doorways and doors not being able to be closed all the way...and sneaky 4 legged kids roaming where they dont belong.
Here is one of the 6 pieces Im working on. It's about half done. I got the flowers painted late last night and have a bunch of touch up to do on it. The pic isnt too good because the flash tends to go off no matter what and it manages to wash some of the subjects out. To compensate for this, I cover over the flash and then attempt to lighten the picture later as it's easier than going the other direction.
EDIT 072607 @124pm: Picture adjustment. I hope this is better.
