Back in the studio

Conté on watercolor paper

It's been a while since Bruce has had a place to create his art.  When we moved back to the states in 2009 we had to move into an apartment because our house was rented out.  We had 2 bedrooms and 1 was our garage.  In it were 4 bikes, Bruce's easel, all his paintings and the rest of our stuff we didn't have a place for.  There wasn't enough room for him to paint.

Now that we are back in France we have 3 bedrooms.  1 is still our garage with a bed, our bikes, camping equipment, climbing equipment and miscellaneous stuff.  The other spare room is his studio.  It looks out onto the limestone cliffs and gets sun all day.  It's a perfect spot for him.  Since our return he's been creating many drawings in conté, watercolor and charcoal.  But now it's time for some painting.  We visited the art supply store yesterday and spent a fortune on oil paints, medium, gesso, etc.  He's set up his "studio" and is excited to get back to what he loves, creating art.

He now has a website where he can sell his work.  The first pieces up are his drawings and it will be updated regularly with his paintings and such.  It's very easy to buy pieces from the site via Paypal (no account required), so if you are looking for some unique Christmas gifts, check it out.  So much better than going to a mall and buying stuff that everyone else has.  Why not give a one of a kind drawing or painting that someone can enjoy forever.

Here is the link to his site (just double click on Bruce Anderson Art)
