Makeshift Studio 

I find myself on the go a lot, and always seem to be able to put together a makeshift studio.  The house we stayed in last week provided beach chairs that actually turned out to be a perfect chair for working, complete with built it pockets and an attached side table.  The chair also easily folds for transport.  Not so fancy, but the box was also a useful addition to my work space as well.

The "Glenview Gang" 

The "Glenview Gang" is another impression of birds that I finished up over the winter.  This one found itself a home pretty quickly.
