I just finished repainting my entire studio bright white. I didn't even get the paint store employees to put any colorants at all in the cans. I have flat white for a smooth, non glaring wall and gloss white for the trim work. It was an awful lot of white to begin with but I love it now that I've gotten over the shock! The room color doesn't affect my paintings at all except to bathe them in a lovely soft light.
As you can tell, I love maps, especially antique maps. I always keep a modern map of the world so I can plan painting trips. I have a map of Mount Desert Island because I love going there almost every year to sketch. The other paintings and maps in my art studio rotate frequently.
I keep mats,packaging and stored paintings neat and ready so I can mail an ordered painting quickly! I also have a large format archival printer so I can print limited edition prints myself. I think it's extremely important to print art prints myself so I can have them as close to the original painting as possible. I can also control the quality by making certain that everything sent to a client is absolutely perfect.
