In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

The Shed as Art Gallery

Harmony and Simplicity from my friend Elizabeth Metz

Nel Jansen's sunset, plus two of mine on the right

Ann Thompson Nemcosky's leaves in colored pencil

"Faith," from dear friend Vicky Williamson, sunflower postcard from my mentor, Ann Zwinger, and black-eyed susans from old friend Roberta Hammer

The previous, in situ with one of my accordion sketchbooks of cat sketches

Art corner, with Ann's sunset, a print by Toni Ponce Kelly by the boom box, Elizabeth Metz's Harmony and Simplicity under the window, and my two paintings--acrylics, one from YEARS ago (my cat Ginsberg) and the fantasy painting from a few years back of me and my friend Susan Theroff, who is a wonderful model!
Another of my Susan!
Puck, on his own, sort of...
Toni Ponce Kelly's wonderful serenity prayer...before it found its permanent place

The two redware cups and the green one and small jar by Ann's painting are my pottery; Puck is on the wall at right.
Serenity Prayer from Toni Ponce Kelly above the window--it's gorgeous!
Megan Noel Smith did the wonderful brown bowl at left, and that's one of my faerie houses

Funny, I was going to keep the shed simple as a Zen meditation room...
