    I have tried to work small.. John
    eg my mini portraits ...but I'm happiest when I'm working on a large scale in fact I've nearly run out of wall space...
    ah but now that I have access to my sister's 6 huge studios and miles of hall space...the skies are the limit ;) as you found from my alias as Pixie Barker ;)

    let me know when you can visit Mariuca and I'll make sure you can have the main bathroom ;)
    it has a spa bath too ;) ;)
    yummm cold lemon tea...sounds very Southern :) :)

    thanks Renny
    not a large space but when it comes to the crunch my studio is my easel :)

    haha Michelle..
    I'm sure your studio is amazing...especially with the beautiful work that you create ;)
