Studio Table

My small studio littered with photos after a week of painting

Scattered across my studio tables are reference materials for paintings and my favorite fuel: coffee and a trail mix.

I’ll often use small-edition books with classic photos to get a feel for the characters I paint. Here I’ve opened this copy of Lost & Found: Hong Kong to a colorful photo of coiled incense by Blair Dunton; and Early Hong Kong Brothels by Cheng Po Hung has candid photos of women in early 20th century outfits. They’re reserved and flirtatious at the same time. Irresistible.
