ART STUDIO!!! ART STUDIO!!! What else did you think I meant?! :-) I love seeing other artist's creative spaces in magazines or on the net. They are lovely. Inspirational. And they make me want to write the artist and ask permission to come and . . . DIG!
I have no shame. I would love to sit down with some of these artistas, have a cup of fabulous tea (with cream, of course!), and poke around all their baubles, art supplies, and pretties for a good day. (Boog comes by her foraging talents honestly.)
Trouble is, my studio space just doesn't look like the magazine spreads. Okay, let me back up just a bit. My original studio space flooded, so I had to regroup upstairs to the computer desk/kitchen-table studio. You know the studio--the one eked out of whatever space can pull double duty.
And my studio space is never as neat or as organized as the beautifully pictured examples. In fact, I've come to realize that "The Fast and the Furious" should not have been about drag racing. Oh, no. It should have been about how we mom/artists have to create. Like wild women! Banshees! With one goal in mind: finish the project before the kiddies wakes up from their naps, need a diaper change, want to try on a tutu or break your glass hutch with their Hotwheels. . . you get the idea.
There are times, after a creative spell, when I'll wake up from my art frenzy and think some burglar on the prowl has ransacked my art studio in a desperate search for treasure. . .
But, no. It's just me. Going berserk in my own small art space. I have learned, however, that small spaces do have their perks. It's harder to lose stuff. I can keep better track of what supplies I have on hand. And I can eat a four-course meal while drawing painting ideas, crocheting, or surfing the net. :-) So I've shown you mine. What does your art studio look like?
