Is it smart to decide to repaint, reorganize and redecorate your studio in the middle of a deadline?
Am I happy I did?
Hee hee.. those are the things us artists deal with from time to time I guess. The sudden urge, the itch, the muse or whatever name you'd like to call it. You know.. that little voice inside your head that doesn't shut up until you finally do something about it.
My studio is very tiny (emphasize on the tiny. I've seen walking closets way bigger) and sadly very dark. It only has one little window that doesn't really face the outside but more like the back terrace of the house. There is nothing I would love more than a studio with tons of windows and french doors to let the beautiful warm daylight in but I have to work with what I have.
Here is a little peek at some corners:
My daughter and I painted the studio over the weekend using a whiter shade. I used a satin paint which reflects the light beautifully. I have 3 table lamps plus the ceiling fan has a light too and I'm thinking of getting another floor lamp. LOL
Those glasses holding the watercolor pencils are Nutella jars. So now you know, Nutella is not only delicious and nutritious... but very handy for your studio too. So go buy some right now, I give you permission ;o)
I managed to take a pic of my office assistant, did you see her at the top? She sleeps by my feet under my studio table, other times on my lap which is very tricky when painting.
Ok, that's it. This is a flash post because I have to go work again. Wish I could share a pic of my studio table right now but you know how it is, the good old artist's-sworn-to-secrecy-blood-pact with the publisher. Darn. ;o)
