Stepping up to work larger

Due to the large size of my paintings, the stools and ladders in my studio are an integral part of my practice so I’d thought I’d show you what I use and why. Of course safety is a big concern, I have fallen before! Here’s what I recommend if you want to work large.

Take a look…

I love how I’m able to lean into my smaller ladder. I can work at a nice height and still feel secure and comfortable, plus this ladder is so easy to move around the studio.

Do you have a solution to help you reach your painting when working large? I’d love to hear in the comments.

Join me for this Wednesday’s episode of the Art2Life Podcast, as I share art adventure stories! I recount some of the crazier tales that have mostly taken place at Art2Life Destination Workshops. Click here to subscribe to the Art2Life Podcast and catch up on past episodes, too!

Have an awesome Sunday!
