An inside glimpse of the artist's workshop. This isn't your
neat, clean, light and airy watercolorist studio. There are baby
dolls hanging from bits of driftwood wedged in between found
wooden boxes. There are toys and bits of rusty metal, panels
off old computers, and old photos everywhere.
In the workshop, there are usually a half dozen works in
progress (some with a gestation period of two years) and the
sculptural equivalent of doodles here and there. Usually there
is a Johnny Cash or Old Time music vinyl playing on the 50 year
old record player.
Welding and sawing and routing and other loud, messy things
are done in the yard outside under the giant redwood tree.
The workshop is multi-functional. Not only is it a studio and
getaway, but it doubles as a now-and-then domino parlor and
cardroom. Half of the workshop is shared with the Hobos From
Hell office, from whence the trainhopping 'zine There's
Something About a Train is published.
