My Workspace

I know a lot of people are curious to see behind the scenes into how an artist creates, so here is a glimpse into my world!  This is my workspace. My little corner of the world is really bright, with a window facing south and another facing east, which is PERFECT for painting.  I got this big oak desk in my neighborhood when someone set it outside with a 'free' sign on it.  I really love it because it's sturdy but also a little beat up so I don't feel so bad when it gets paint and charcoal all over it.  Just adds a little more character!  It has lots of storage for all of my supplies.  The sticks in the background are fruit tree branches I am trying to coax to bloom indoors for an early taste of spring.  The artwork you see is a pastel of a Pharaoh hound I am currently working on.  And of course, there is my computer which I am currently typing this blog on.  From this desk I answer all of my client's emails and run my two online shops as well as draw and paint at every available opportunity.  There you have it... Endless Sumner's Art international headquarters. 


  1. Your studio is so neat and organized! Thank you for showing your creative corner. Mine is almost the complete opposite, there is always the bones of three or four art projects in the works at any given time. ;-D

  2. Hi, I am curious about your desktop drawing desk, where and how much, that is really cool. I have enjoyed looking at your work so far. Two years ago I ran through that country one direction or another for six weeks, but always made a left and went over the hill. I assume your working from photos, very nice. Catch you on facebook or twitter.

  3. Thanks for sharing TangledWood and Rusty's Notebook. The drawing desk is actually just an inexpensive laptop stand that I have found works great as a table easil!
