Snapshots From the White Oak Studio Open House

Here are some of the images I took in the showroom during our first of two fall open houses last weekend. It rained here is SW Michigan so there are not many picture of the back porch though it was filled with furniture too at various points throughout the weekend.

A long shot from the barrier free bathroom ends with a view of my photo area blue and black bedspreads turned into “curtains.”.

We like to offer an old-fashioned and warm White Oak Studio welcome!

Our refreshment table offered cider and cookies.

I’ve found its easy to work hard and create, but at my age it’s not so easy to get this work out to the public.  I’ve tried consignment in various galleries and shops, Craig’s List and the like but this is where a studio tour comes into play.

I am very fortunate to have a freestanding studio space dedicated to my creative endeavors.

Hydrangea blooms fill the window boxes and a pumpkin peeks out.

Not a lot of light on a dim rainy day, but here are two pieces that were showcased on the open porch.
