Art Studio Sneak Peek

Posted on Oct 10, 2013 in art, printmaking, studio, updates | 6 Comments

I thought I’d share with you photos of where I do my messy artwork these days…in my glamorous basement!  This workbench was built by the previous owners.  I used to have a ‘real’ ‘neat’ ‘organized’ studio in the old house, but I was petrified to spill anything on the rug which really stifled my work.  I also felt like I had to cleanup when guests came over.   Now I’m happy to throw paint around, leave a mess and let the kids play with me!  I hope to paint the wood and maybe hang some funky fabric by the window.  I couldn’t be happier except running water and a window view would be nice (dear universe).   I did have a chipmunk peek in at me through the little window one day.  I recently got into gelatin printmaking and am having fun experimenting with that below.  I hope to have some nice results in time for a holiday show!

BEFORE creative session:

 You can see I have lots of inspiration tacked on the upper walls & shelves to remind me of where I’m going….
