    Holy cow – that’s one tidy palette! Meanwhile, I use (and reuse) 6″ styro plates for my watercolor paints, usually squeezing out a good quarter-sized dollop on each and have 1-12 plates on my working table at a time.

    Hey David; yeah I like to keep a tight palette; fortunately, not everybody’s so neurotically obsessive!

    Seriously, I always enjoy visiting other artists’ studios, seeing the enormous variety in the way people approach their work, and workspace.

    I think it was Annie Dillard who said something like “artists should always hide their tracks”…

    I' late on this, but wanted to comment on Andrew Wyeth's work: I was fortunate enough to find a framed painting of his called "Her Room – 1963) @ an estate sale for THREE dollars (yes – $3.00) I've always admired his work & was thrilled to pieces. I discovered the painting has this meaning behind it: "Wyeth used this "austere" medium to create Her Room (1963), the haunting image of a room in his home in Cushing, Maine. The title refers to his wife, Betsy James Wyeth, whom he met in Maine on his twenty-second birthday."

    I don't find the painting haunting in any way. Funny, but when I "googled" the painting, the image the comes up isn't like the one I have (???) I have the painting hanging in my bedroom and I was born in 1963! What are the odds! 😀
