eeBoo Artist Studio 1000 Piece Puzzle
An afternoon in an artist’s studio… Color wheels on the wall, gouache tubes, watercolors, a glass jar with brushes drying, and a sketchbook full of inspirational pieces. All the materials are spread out on a fluorescent-pink-and-red-patterned cloth. Which medium will the artist use? What is the muse today? Painted by Sharon Nullmeyer and inspired by her own studio in Woodstock, New York.
Sharon Nullmeyer, aka Nullsie, lives in New York with her boyfriend and their pups Villa and Larry Gandolf Jr. Originally from Southern California, she enjoys exchanging flip flops for socks and snow boots in the winter. Sharon paints every day in watercolor or gouache. She loves museums, old houses, art classes, country roads, flowers, books, podcasts and music, antique tins and silly t-shirts, all of which have influenced her work.
