Artist Sarah Dawn Helser: Studio shoot

I really love seeing someone's workspace. I like to follow all the details and imagine the progression of a work of art. It just so happens my life has been filled with artists, from my mother, brother, brother-in-law and best friend growing up. My friend, Sarah Dawn Helser, let me into her artistic whirlwind as she prepares for a one man show this Friday at the Renee George Gallery. If you live in Charlotte, you should definitely check out one of my favorite artist's work.

Now the mess is extreme as she had to finish 40 something paintings for another project at the same time as her show. I'm always impressed by her skill, I don't know many people that have the gift of painting she does... 

This is part one. Thanks Sarah (and assistant) for letting me in the process.

This is fascinating. I love the painting of the woman at the top of the page. I would love to have a beautifully messy writer's workspace one day. One day...
