The Studio of Sonya Terpening

Categories: 2016 March-April Issue, Genre, Oil, Portrait, Terpening, Sonya, and Watercolor.

For want of a door to close, Sonya Terpening’s studio was born. Really. How would you feel if you left work at night and your work stood outside your kitchen begging you to return, demanding your undivided attention? That is pretty much the experience Terpening had until a little more than a year ago when her work life changed for the better.

Terpening is excited about her new studio, having recently taken over the master bedroom on the second floor in the Grapevine, Texas, home she has shared with her husband Mark for 28 years. In many respects, Terpening believes she is experiencing perfection. She loves the bright, open studio, which is ideal for painting. Even more important: It has a door.
