The Cutest Little Studio East of the Mississippi

6 Dec

Welcome to my favorite place.

This adorable little building is my painting studio, the place where all the Project 66 paintings will be created once I return home. It’s located in Taylors behind Buckingham Palace, the home of Robert & Lou Buckingham. They kindly allow me squatter’s rights on the building out back. Mostly because they got tired of hearing me say, “if I lived here I would make this building my studio.” I only said it about 47,897,091 times before they relented and let me use it. (Really, it was only 3 times – they are very kind and generous).

Another kind and generous person is my friend Ian Curcio, the photographer responsible for making me look almost as good as the building in this shot. As the blog goes along and you see candid shots from the road you will realize how vast his talent truly is. Check out his website at

If you ever want to come by and visit, please give me a call or send an email and we can set up an appointment.

Be sure to keep up with the blog after I return for progress reports and other interesting stuff.
