Many are asking for pics of my home art studio - where my creativity happens.
I will share!
Here is the hallway leading to my art studio (room) and as you can see it is my gallery wall! But, truthfully - my art is hanging all over the house!
In my opinion (mine only) a true artist will paint anywhere and on anything! Yes, I did paint this ivy plant on the wall - well, stenciled it way back in the day when I was first getting interested in painting. It will lead you into my studio.
Entering into my studio. I do hang my work everywhere! Please take note in the lower left corner of this photo! Yes, my kitty Mozart spends a good part of his day in here with me while I work.
Work table - of course - I picked up and cleaned up the best I could before taking a photo. Usually, although I am a very neat working artist. The small easel that you see there on my work table is from Daley Rowney and I use it for my watercolors. Main reason is that the flat part (where you put your paper) sits on a ball that you can manipulate to create water movement in your art work.
Another shot - man - I just love my space! The book shelf holds and keeps organized many of my supplies. I like order! Of course, the drawers are full and the botton cabinets are full of more art books, videos and supplies!
DVD player only - no TV - sometimes I like to watch instructional art videos or just a video about art. Or maybe just a romantic comedy to help lighten things up since I seem to get really intense at times. Oh and yes, those are a few of my counted cross stitches I did way way back in the day! Funny!
This is my easel that I use to do my pastel work. I am trying to figure out how to put wheels on it so I can move it around the room! I can keep most of my pastels in the drawer and the lip catches most of the dust from the pastels. I pull up the blind and I have more light than I need.
Here are my books shelves that hold art books, hand made sketch books, store bought sketch books, and many other books that give me inspiration! Also I keep my portfolios here, too!
I will hang my art anywhere! And I do use this door as an "idea" area . . . .
More of the above!
This little rolling table holds all my watercolor and acrylic supplies. Plus, oh yeah, don't miss more of my wall hangings!
THAT'S ALL FOLKS!
