New Blue

My husband recently built me a new still life stage that I've been thinking about for years. (click photo to enlarge) The frame is welded steel. The stages or shelves are topped with wood and can be moved up and down as needed. The top one is for eye level views, as you can see in the second photo. The bottom shelf is for birds eye compositions, specifically larger ones that I have been hankering to paint. Eventually I will have a third, mid-size shelf for everything in between. The top bars are for clamping lights to, and draping fabric over when I need to control ambient light. The vertical piece (wood) is covered in cork so I can pin up fabric or paper.

This is the first painting I've done using my new stage. I'm also featuring a new blue vase that I picked up recently at my favorite, local, junk shop. : )

What a great set up. I was wondering how you got your inspiration for your daily drawings. In particular how you did the lighting. Well, now I know. Thanks for sharing your new still life staging area. High fives to your husband too.
Cheers, Jenny
