A Corner of the Studio

As I work, I am constantly backing away from the easel to view my paintings from a distance.  In the corner is a mirror positioned where I can view the painting I'm working on (you can quickly spot mistakes when you see a painting backwards in a mirror).  Sometimes I sit and ponder my next move or grab a nearby book and get inspired.  I admire many artists, but none more than John Singer Sargent and Joaquin Sorolla, whose books are conveniently located together on my bookshelf.
