Fine study of an Artist's workshop, Ginnie...I believe I have been there.
Ginnie Hart: I'm quite sure you would have seen this with your own eyes, Ray, so you know.
This would make a beautiful photograph as a gift for a painter. I love it.
Ginnie Hart: That's a sweet idea, Hollie. Thank you.
i am sure any artist would tell you that each brush has a specific application and he/she couldn't do without each and every one of those brushes. i did not know Chad painted as well (or is it someone else in the family).
Ginnie Hart: It's Chad's wife, Norma, who is the painter, Ayush, and, yes, I'm quite sure every brush has a specific purpose.
Very much like the studio of someone I know.
Ginnie Hart: When you have a studio in a house from 1346, it becomes its own painting, Michael!
Very nice, Ginnie! It's really a wonderful comp and subject... I especially like the bride peeking out in the back - is that Norma?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth, and, yes, maybe that's Norma. I can't tell for sure without looking more carefully.

A fine shot Ginnie: Norma is the real deal when it comes to painting
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. The real deal, indeed!

Oh, I recall Norma's wonderful, atrmospheric 'empire' upstairs - you captured it very well! (I'll want to post a little homage to Norma, too, a bit later)
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad you were able to see it for yourself, Philine. It's a photographer's paradise!

Wonderful picture and this is an artist heaven. The brushes have a great life in this home, they are well taken care of and perform great
This was my point of view 2 years ago. http://picturit.shutterchance.com/image/2012/05/23/window/
Ginnie Hart: I had forgotten about your outside shot from 2012, so THANK YOU for including it here. What a studio. Talk about a photo op!
wow! that is super smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Joshi.

And what a wonderful outlook from Norma's studio, Ginnie - that glimpse is tantalising
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. It almost makes you want to be a painter! smile
Ah but how good is she with a 6 inch Emulsion brush?
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Bill. We'll have to ask her...or Chad! smile

Beautiful light here, the view through the window is amazing. An inspiration to the artist smile.
Ginnie Hart: I would be in heaven if I were a painter and worked in that studio, Sarito. For sure! Thank you.

Looks a bit like creative chaos, Ginnie. I like it; well presented!
Ginnie Hart: A painter's muse, perhaps, HF? smile

Charming intimist place where the artist gathers his material
Ginnie Hart: I suspect Norma gets a lot of inspiration from her studio, Marie. Indeed.

Haha - I know where this is - Norma's inner sanctum. Fine photograph.
Ginnie Hart: Inner sanctum, indeed, Mike. It would be a painter's paradise! Thank you.

The way the light is coming through the window really shows how these stones were cut so long ago Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Chad. You're so right. Thanks.

In answer to Elizabeth, the bride is my daughter.
Ginnie Hart: Aha! Now we all know. Thanks, Chad.

This is exactly my vision of an artist's studio; very many paintbrushes and a slightly cluttered feel.
Ginnie Hart: You nailed it, Alan. smile
Nice, Ginnie...Photoshop is a lot tidier. smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHA! Norma would have no clue what to do with PS, I imagine. smile
Fine portrait of the artist/s tools, Ginnie. Those are some thick walls.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. Walls from 1346!

Tie them together and make a raft. You won't sink, then.

Great shot and use of light.
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Louis. Ippose enough wood would be useful one day. smile su
It seems that an artist can never have too many brushes!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure that's very true, Tom. smile
What a treasure trove Norma has arranged & stored on this deep window sill. Considering the age of this wonderful home, Ginnie, I wonder if there were other artists living here who used this very window to store their supplies as well.

I can imagine Norma using this marvelous image as inspiration for one of her paintings.
Ginnie Hart: You would be in heaven there, Beverly, as is Norma...and any who see it. Your words are very kind and generous, as always. Thank you.
I've always admired people who can make pictures with paints and brushes, it has to be Photoshop for me.
Ginnie Hart: For some of us who always wanted to paint with real brushes, Brian, but never did, PhotoShop has become our "tool." I love it.
what a study eh..love the composition Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Ronky...and thanks.
needs more paint brushes!!!!
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Dennis. Good one! smile
A wonderful artist sight Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: It would make any artist's heart sing, Richard, I'm sure! smile

That is a lot of brushes!!
Ginnie Hart: You can say that again, Cherry. smile
There are no words for this!! Amazing!
Ginnie Hart: You'd love to see her studio in this old cottage, Robin. You'd stand there with your mouth wide open.
Oh I love to paint too smile
One of my favourite subjects at school.
Ginnie Hart: Then you'd love this studio, LC. Do you have a pic of one of your paintings? I'd love to see one!!! (Pretty please?)

We recognize the storage side artists!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Pat. I think we all can identify, even if we aren't painters. smile
