have i told you before that i love my studio?
today, a peek into where i spend so much time.
this is what i see first thing in the morning. and i do mean first thing.
there was a little light when i took these photos today. it is cozy
to be surrounded by all of my favorite things.
this is about as clear as my table top ever is. sometimes i think that having it totally clear
will allow me to to larger pieces on my table but i work around that for now.
there are two drawers on the table.
looking into my left drawer
and the right drawer. my supplies are arranged to compliment
my layered work flow. it took me a while to get to this.
i had this table made when i did a lot of knits to be used for a steaming table.
it is standing height. that's another thing i might change in the future... lowering the table.
the little closets
on my easel right now
my little cart. it is so handy right next to the table.
i always love see artist brushes splayed from their container.
these are the drawers to the left of the table.
you can't see them in the photo.
watercolors, gouache, stamps, hand painted papers and images for collage
oil pastels, more collage papers. And one more drawer that i throw all papers
in for potential future use. As a mixed media artist, everything has potential.
i took these pics today because i spent a few days organizing.
it won't stay like this for long. i like the unfolding that happens both in discovering
what is being created and bringing out the supplies that help a painting come into being.
then when the piece is completed, putting thing back feels like the completion of the process.
