An Artist's Dream Home
I had the thrilling experience to spend part of last Sunday with artist Judy Vogland and her husband Bob at their NW Portland home. The purpose of the visit was to learn how to build my own canvases (I'm taking a class from Judy later this month at Sitka), but the bonus was getting to tour Judy and Bob's house. Oh my. It was an artist's dream home - filled to the brim with Judy's art, her daughter Taylor's art, and the art of lots of Northwest and internationally known artists. Judy graciously allowed me to snap as many photos as I wanted. I've restrained myself pretty good and whittled my dozens of photos down to what I'm sharing in this post. Enjoy the visit. It's certainly a sensory delight.
Some peeks into the first floor living quarters.
Up up up the stairs and into Judy's expansive studio.
The reason for the visit? To learn how to build sturdy, heavy duty canvases. Check.
